The tram stop is located on a section of line which follows the trackbed of the former Woodside and South Croydon Railway, although there was no station at the location prior to the opening of Tramlink. The stop is at ground level on double track, with platforms on each side of the tracks. Immediately to the east of the station is a junction where services diverge either to the north along a section of route specially constructed for Tramlink, or continue straight ahead along the former railway right of way. Just beyond this junction services bound for Elmers End becomes a single track for the rest of its journey.

The National Cycle Route 21 (the Waterlink Way) crosses the tram lines at Arena.
