Near the garden lies the Bund which is a waterfront area located at the west bank of the Huangpu Rive in central Shanghai. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road (East No.1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River in the eastern part of Huangpu District.
