The Delta is formed at the western edge of the Central Valley at the crossroads of the mighty Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. The American, Mokelumne, Cosumnes and Calaveras Rivers feed into the two major rivers. The Delta flows west through a maze of 57 islands and channels, then on to San Francisco Bay, finally joining the vast Pacific Ocean. In all, the Delta boasts 57,000 acres of navigable waterways.
As the largest freshwater estuary on the West Coast of the Americas, covering 700 square miles, the Delta is a literal lifeline. This vital resource supplies fresh water to more than 23 million Californians. It provides habitat to hundreds of distinct species of wildlife—some found nowhere else on Earth. It sustains hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland that produce about 45% of the nation’s fruits and vegetables. It’s a veritable playground for boaters and adventurers. One of our country’s greatest natural parks.
Delta Coves is the only new community that puts you just minutes from the Delta’s fast waters. Located in California’s Contra Costa County, where it hugs the western part of the great Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Located eight miles east of the city of Antioch, this new island enclave is easily accessed via Highway 4, east of its junction with Highway 80 and San Pablo Bay. It’s only an hour east of San Francisco, an hour northeast of San Jose and Silicon Valley, an hour southeast of Napa and 45 minutes east of Oakland by car. And, BART’s new Antioch Station, only eight miles away, will offer easy commutes.
