Access to the waterfront park is convenient and only takes a short 10-minute walk from MRT Dahu Park Station. The entrance is easily noticeable, with 5 bamboo-knit chickens welcoming visitors next to the steps.
 
According to the Hydraulic Engineering Office (HEO), the Dagouxi Waterfront Park is the first eco park in Taipei to merge leisure with the functions of a riparian buffer to enhance riverbank stabilization. The facility plays a key role, since the water of Dagouxi River passes through the various bodies of waters and forests located in the vicinity of Wuzhishan Mountain.
