It is situated near to Labrador Park, a historical site which held former fortifications and naval guns built by the British forces in Singapore before World War II. The station has only one exit and entry point.

The station is located along the Labrador Nature & Coastal Walk's Berlayer Creek sector.
Art in Transit
The artwork featured in this station under the Art in Transit programme is Without Which/Would Have Been/Impossible by Heman Chong. The art piece, located on the side of the lift shaft in the station, consists of the title of the piece and several coloured circles of different sizes arranged in a regular fashion. According to the artist, the motif came from a "microscopic view of a single rock" found at Labrador Park, highlighting the park's distinctive identity as the last surviving rocky sea cliff in Singapore.
