Visitors to the Harbour City now have a second option to discover all that’s happening around town.

A temporary visitor information centre opens Friday (May 18) at the Rotary rest area on Northfield Road at the Nanaimo Parkway.

Run by the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation’s tourism division, the centre is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A second tourism kiosk in the downtown Port of Nanaimo Centre remains open for similar hours until the  Labour Day long weekend in September.

A permanent visitor centre, under construction at the Northfield rest area, is scheduled to open this summer.

Additional plans for the area include an off-leash dog park, trail connections and washroom facilities.
