KIRK DOUGLAS OPENS 400TH PLAYGROUND

Hollywood icon Kirk Douglas and his beautiful wife have unveiled their 400th school playground. This concludes their ten year effort to provide a safe place for Californian kids to play. Yesterday, Douglas, still strong at age 91, rode down a slide at the opening of the Beethoven Street Elementary School’s newest play area in Culver City, California, something he has performed at every playground ceremony. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Douglas’ close friend and co-star in the 1979 movie The Villain, was present to praise the Spartacus star and his wife, Anne, for their contributions to the state’s play areas.The couple set up the Anne & Kirk Douglas Playground Awards in late 1997, with the aim of building and refurbishing 400 play areas in Los Angeles California's school districts. They have donated more than $8 million in the last 10 years alone.
