The park is north of Gros Morne National Park near Parson's Pond along the Viking Trail, and includes a parking lot, boardwalk, and picnic area. The rock formation is composed of Ordovician aged dolomitic conglomerates of the Daniels Harbour Member of the Cow Head Group which has been eroded by sea wave action. These porous conglomerates can be oil-bearing, and areas near The Arches Provincial Park have seen some oil exploration activity.

Arches Provincial Park reviews
Just one of the many scenic stops along the west coast drive going north. Nice little place to take a break, collect nice rocks with your kids, have a snack, or take some pictures. The arches themselves are cool to look at. Just one section of a beautiful family drive.
It is easy to see why this was made a Provincial Park, these formations, which will not last forever---though sea level rise might get to them before the process of erosion does---a great spot to stop on the long drive north to stretch your legs and take in some of Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsula's abundant natural beauty.
