    A group of kids in my street play on they own at the park. Most are 7-8yo, a few younger. They are probably 20m away from their home though

    To me, yes it's too young. I'd prefer 18.

    I was 11 before I was allowed to walk to the park with a friend alone. I just can't imagine letting my kids do it at that age!! They are only 5 and 1 though so it's hard to even picture them at that age.

    Depends on the distance, the area etc. For example we live in a very quiet family friendly area and its normal to see kids early primary age riding around the streets or at the estate park. They are usually in a bigger group though.

    For me, I personally dont allow my dd1 to do it yet. If we lived closer to the park (ie if i could see the park from my house) I would consider it though. I was around her age when I started going off on my own, riding to the park a few streets away and even to the shops which were a few blocks away and on a busy main road.
