From the dynamic business opportunities at Brunswick Landing to the world-class academic excellence of Bowdoin College…from its lively downtown and cultural offerings to its peaceful small-town atmosphere…Brunswick is surely a town everyone can love! Family-friendly and economically robust, Brunswick is beautifully balanced between urban sophistication and coastal charm, offering residents and the entire region a thriving arts, culture and culinary scene, great schools, unique shopping, and a rich history dating back to the 17th century. With a population of approx. 20,000, Brunswick spans 54 square miles within irregular boundaries, from the historic Androscoggin River on the North to the rugged coastline of Maquoit and Casco Bays on the South. Brunswick’s long irregular shoreline measures almost 66 miles on Casco Bay and another 12 miles on the Androscoggin; the Town’s coastal areas also include several small uninhabited islands.
