The park extends over 2.5 miles from Bordesley Abbey in the north to Washford Mill in the south. The River Arrow meanders through the park providing excellent wildlife habitats and interesting walks for visitors.

The park incorporates a 29 acre man-made lake, a tarmac foot path which gives full disabled access around the park and lake and park is open to walking, jogging and cycling. The focal point of the park is the Visitor Centre, situated on the edge of the lake, with a cafe over looking Arrow Valley Lake, Gift Shop and toilet facilities. Arrow Valley Park has held the prestigious Green Flag Award since 2005.

"The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales. The award scheme began in 1996 as a means of recognising and rewarding the best green spaces in the country. It was also seen as a way of encouraging others to achieve the same high environmental standards, creating a benchmark of excellence in recreational green areas."
