The station is located on the A Line's exclusive right-of-way (the historic route of the Pacific Electric Railway) that paralells Pacific Place, at its intersection with Wardlow Street, after which the station is named, in the Wrigley neighborhood of Long Beach, California.[5]

The Willow and Wardlow stations are the two A Line stations closest to the Long Beach Municipal Airport. The A Line maintenance and storage yard is located between the Wardlow and Del Amo stations. [1]
