Bund Garden, also known as Mahatma Gandhi Udhyan, is a calm and beautiful tourist spot in Pune. Located on the bank of Rivers Mula and Mutha, the garden was originally conceived as an idea to construct a mini dam that would help farmers with irrigation. Today, it is a popular picnic spot where one can enjoy nature’s calmness and exquisiteness.

Boating is a popular activity at the backwaters adjoining the park area. It is also a well-known destination among bird-watchers who get to see a variety of migratory bird species here. Winter months are most suitable for bird watching while monsoon months are ideal to experience nature’s glory at full bloom.

Jogging, horse riding and regular magic shows add to the numbers of visitors to the garden. One can also visit Aga Khan Palace connected to the garden by a bridge.  

Road: Mumbai-Pune Expressway, National Highways 4, 9 and 50 and state highways connect Pune to many important destinations. Public transport buses as well as private transport vehicles run on these routes. The main bus station is about 4 km. from the garden and one can choose among local transport options like buses, taxis, cabs, auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws.

Railway: Pune Railway Station is less than 2 km. from the garden. Regular trains operate between the station and various destinations like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
