I had that as a kid. I didn't realise back then how lucky we were, but it was one of the best memories I have of my childhood. They're were 3 of us the same age all with 3 brothers/sisters of all ages- we all had pools and we would climb fences and get into the other ones pool, back over and around. We used to play cricket and soccer on the street out the front. If anyone saw a car- they'd yell "CAR" and we would grab the ball and move to the side, when the car passed- we resumed playing. Our street was pretty quiet though.
I'd love for my son to have had this experience. Nothing like it. My childhood neighbours are still our best friends.

I would love to live in your street!
My kids are friends with the little girl next door and they are often there or at our place. They have to ask both parents first to check, but I love having kids over to play, they entertain themselves very well.
I would have the rule the kids have to check with their parents but otherwise I would be happy for kids to come and go.

Growing this was the norm and I have the fondest memories of hanging out with the neighbours. I live on a farm and so our nearest neighbours are a few km away but if I lived in town, I'd be very ok with it - with a few boundaries in place as pp have mentioned.
