The station is located underneath the metro park, near Minsheng West Road and Zhongshan North Road. The station is a two-level, underground structure with one island platform and two exits.[3] The washrooms are inside the entrance area.

Public art in the station consists of a mural titled "Dawning Sail".[4] Composed of porcelain enamel, the mural reflects Shuanglian's rich historical past from its role as a once-prosperous trading post on the Tamsui River to new developments in the area.

The station is a planned transfer station with the Minsheng-Xizhi Line.[5]
