Eye on L.A. for Sept. 6, 2008

September 6, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
This week on Eye on L.A.: A visit to Chatsworth and Whittier, trying a trapeze workout, a new photography exhibit, and Kirk and Anne Douglas refurbish another Los Angeles park.CHATSWORTH

Eye on L.A. visits Chatsworth, a neighborhood with one of the most developed equestrian communities in the country for horseback riding, boarding and competing. We visit Steelgate Farms -- a luxurious stable for boarding horses -- and local businesses like Los Toros and The Cowboy Palace Saloon, which have corrals and hitching posts in front to accommodate their clientele.

Another great activity in Chatsworth is Tae Kwon Do. Kings Tae Kwon Do Center is run by a family of three champion black belts.

KIRK DOUGLAS PLAYGROUNDS

Legendary actor Kirk Douglas and his wife are no strangers to philanthropy. Over a decade ago, Anne Douglas read about the poor state of L.A. school playgrounds and decided she wanted to do something about it. Now, 11 years later, they have just finished refurbishing their 401st playground.

WHITTIER NEIGHBORHOOD

Eye on L.A. visits Whittier, a historic city located about 12 miles Southeast of Los Angeles. This charming neighborhood has a small-town feel with modern touches. It's filled with residents who have grown up here and have chosen to stay, including many who run local businesses in Uptown Whittier -- a hotspot for dining and shopping.
