Cute little park right next to a waterfall. The Kirk Douglas plaque is right at the front of the park.

Kirk Douglas Park

Fans of Spartacus himself can't miss Kirk Douglas Park in Amsterdam. A large stone with the actor's image welcomes those to the park along the Chuctanunda Creek. Douglas grew up in Amsterdam.

We trust that the rock with the plaque features a prominent cleft!
