At a distance of 3 km from Pune Junction, Bund Garden is situated on the right bank of Mula-Mutha River in Pune. This is one of the popular Pune tourist places.

The picturesque Bund Garden was constructed on the instructions of Sir Jamshedji Jeejeebhoy. The Bund Garden has derived its name from the mini dam (bund), which has been constructed across the Mula-Mutha River. It has been renamed as Mahatma Gandhi Udyan, owing to the presence of a bridge in the park that reaches across the river to the Gandhi National Memorial, or Aga Khan Palace.

Bund Garden is also known as a birds watchers' paradise in the winter season as variety of migratory birds take shelter here. Popular for its well-designed jogging track, the park attracts a horde of health conscious visitors both in the mornings and evenings. The garden is an ideal place to spend some family time as one can enjoy boating in the backwaters of the River Mula-Mutha at the garden. In this garden, magic shows and horse riding are also organized occasionally.
