I had crossed the street towards the King David at Yemin Moshe, when I came across a barrier.
Yes, that meant that I had to go through the little park. It added a few minites to my walk, not as much for the distance, but because I kept stopping to take pictures.
|There were a bunch of chareidi-looking girls all dressed in modest "swimming robes" playing in the fountain.|
An additional benefit was that I walked up and down hills, making it for a fitness walk than the sidewalk would have been.
