Playground for the Elderly

Germany has one of the lowest birth rates in Europe and they are planning for the following decades, where the elderly, are the future. So, what's a city with a unstoppable growing population of elderly people to do?


Well, build a new playground of course -- but probably not the type of playground you're thinking.

The city of Nuremberg, Germany is proposing to build an adult playground for the elderly. Not thinking grandma will be too keen on swinging from the monkey bars? Neither are they. The proposed playground is aimed at helping the elderly people keep fit and it will have giant chess boards, card-playing spots and, for the especially agile elderly, a running track and even a badminton court.

What a change it would be to see grandma whooping little Johnny's ass in dodgeball.
