Out with the Old, In with the New

For many years, the south end of the Old City was kind of ignored. There was some archaeological digs left open, such as in this picture, but for the most part not to much was done with that section.

A few years ago it was decided to build a playground over there, and so they did. A nice one with courts, and a children's play area.

In the background we see the ancient Jewish Cemetery on the Mount of Olives. An interesting contrast between new and old, and living and dead.
