High on the hills of East Talpiot, this promenade, the "Tayelet" offers a fantastic view of the entire Jerusalem landscape including the sparkling Old City and surrounding walls. This spacious park has many walking trails that traverse the area and wonderful shaded grasslands for family picnics. Peer into the surrounding villages of Abu Dis, Silwan, Abu Tor and gaze across at the New City skyline. The park's lights turn off at 11:30pm. Visitors are encouraged to avoid visiting the area alone at night as it is not well lit and far from the center of town.

I didn't get a chance to go under the top and view it from there. Still, it was breath taking. It was part of the tour through my college, so it was already worth the money.
If you have the time to experience a view of Yerushalyim from the Haas Promenade, take it.
