It has a compact shape resembling a rhomb with its longer axis close to East-West direction and the shorter one to North-South one. It covers communes of Jablonna, Nieporęt, Serock and Wieliszew in the Legionowski county (powiat), communes of Dabrowka and Radzymin in the Wolominski county and commune of Somianka in the Wyszkowski county. The surface of the area amounts to 733 km2 . It borders in the South the city of Warsaw and surrounds the Zegrzynski Lake. The lake, together with the Narew and Bug rivers and their its tributaries, constitute the fishing area no. 7 of the Mazovian District of the Polish Angling Association (PZW - Polski Zwiazek Wedkarski). Only the commune of Jablonna has no direct access to this area, but has strong functional ties with the rest of the LAG area.
The area’s landscape is a lowland one. Still, it is quite diversified due to the presence of river valleys and remnants of moraine and kame hills. North-western part of the LAG area belongs to the Ciechanow Upland, north-eastern and eastern one – to the Valley of Lower Bug and the Wolomin Plain and the southern and western parts to the Warsaw Basin. All these meso-regions belong to the sub-province of the Central Poland Lowland.
The LAG area is accessible with a number of major roads such as the international one E 67: Prague – Warsaw - Kaunas and the national roads: no. 61: Warsaw – Augustow and no. 62: Strzelno – Wloclawek – Plock - Wyszkow. The Warsaw-Gdansk railroad cuts through the area’s southern part, while the central-eastern one can be reached with the local Legionowo-Tluszcz rail line.
The „Zefir” tourist boat connects the Zegrzynski Lake (Serock being the final destination) with Warsaw through the Zeranski Canal in summer season.
