Arrowe was a township in Woodchurch ancient parish, Wirral hundred, which became a civil parish in 1866. It included the hamlet of Arrowe Park. It was part of the Wirral Rural District from 1894 until 1933.

In 1933 it was abolished and absorbed into Birkenhead Municipal Borough and the civil parish of Irby which, at the same time, became part of Wirral Urban District.

In the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974 the entire Wirral Peninsula, with the exception of the municipal borough of Ellesmere Port and urban district of Neston at the southern end, became the Metropolitan Borough of the Wirral in the new administrative county of Merseyside.
