Graiseley ward is bounded by Penn Road (A449) to the east, Coalway Road and Church Road to the south, Bradmore Road and Merridale Road to the west and the ring road to the north.
Confusingly, the area of Graiseley straddles its namesake council ward and neighbouring Blakenhall ward.
Graiseley is home to parks, shopping centres, and schools, along with sub-urban and inner city housing.
Areas within the ward include:
The area is served by three state primary schools: Graiseley, Aston and Merridale.
Penn Fields School is a special school located in the area and there is a Resource Area for Moderate Learning Difficulties at Graisely Primary School.
The Junior School of the Royal Wolverhampton School also lies in the ward.
The Graiseley Brook is a small river that drains the area. It originally rose to the rear of the present Merridale School site and flowed across the Merridale and Compton areas to join the Smestow Brook, part of the River Severn catchment. Much of the course is now culverted.
