History

Bueng Kum was separated from Bang Kapi on 4 September 1989 consisting of 3 sub-districts: Khlong Kum, Khan Na Yao, and Saphan Sung. On 14 October 1997, Khan Na Yao and Saphan Sung's were elevated to districts, leaving Bueng Kum with sole sub-district: Khlong Kum.

Bueng Kum was named so because of a lake (Bueng means lake) used as water reservoir for flood prevention. There are also plants called Kum around the lake. The lake is part of Seri Thai Park.
