BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick Downtown Association will offer a sneak preview of the new Brunswick Visitor Center after the town’s Memorial Day parade on May 31.

Greg Farr, Executive Director of the Brunswick Downtown Association, said fliers will be placed throughout the downtown inviting the public to come see the new visitor center, which is located on Station Avenue. The Visitor Center is about 90 percent complete.

The Station Avenue building is on the existing railroad line and houses two restaurants – Scarlet Begonias and Byrne’s Irish Pub – as well as Park Row Interiors, the Bowdoin College dance studio and the Town Council meeting chambers.

Farr said 40 greeters have been trained to staff the new Visitor Center which will not only serve Amtrak passengers, but visitors to Brunswick’s downtown.

Amtrak service from Portland is expected to be operational by 2012. The station is currently used by the Maine Eastern Railroad, which provides passenger rail service between Brunswick and Rockland.
