LAYTON, Utah (AP) - The traditional playground is getting a modern makeover.
City officials in Layton, about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City, plan to open an electronic public playground later this summer. The playground includes electronic versions of games such as capture the flag and tug of war.
Ja Eggett, Layton's city parks planner, says the goal is to get the video game generation back to the playground so they become more active.
The playground is part of a $500,000 yet-to-be named park that's set to open later this month.
