The site is spread across an area of 194 hectares (480 acres) and includes a 42-hectare (100 acres) water body with an island. The Central Business District (CBD) is located to the east of the site and one of the largest convention centres in the country, Biswa Bangla Convention Centre, has been built to its north.
The master plan for the Eco-Park has been prepared with the intent to balance its role as a city level recreational open space, with the need for the park to help mitigate some of the adverse impacts of urbanization of the surrounding area. The Eco-Park has been developed to re-establish a healthy self-sustaining eco-system.
