This elevated station features two side platforms, two exits, and platform elevators located on the north and south sides of the concourse level.[2] It is named for the nearby Dahu Park, visible from the system between Dahu Park and Huzhou.

Public art for the station is titled "Flying Kites at Home in the Sky"; it consists of 12 sculptures and is located around the entrance area.[3] While the glass walls of the entrance area resemble an aquarium, the kites give the illusion of aquatic animals floating in the tank.
