The Park is in Lesser Poland Voivodeship. Part of it is within the city of Kraków, with the remainder in Kraków County, shared between two gminas (administrative districts): Gmina Czernichów and Gmina Liszki. The Park takes its name from Bielany and Tyniec, two former villages which are now part of Kraków.

Within the Landscape Park are four nature reserves, as well as 18 natural monuments, including trees and caves.
