LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- The traditional playground is getting a modern makeover.
Layton officials plan on opening up an electronic public playground later this summer. The playground includes electronic games such as capture the flag and tug of war.
Another game includes a rocking balance piece in which children attempt to get an electronic dot inside a circle.
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.
