My son is nearly 7. We just moved to a neighborhood where a lot of boys run around outside all day playing with each other. He's been invited to go with them this afternoon to a place 2 1/2 blocks from here where the street has been dug up and all teh kids play in the sand. These seem like polite and responsible kids, and the location is in front of a store where the parents of one of his friends work. There are always adults around, albeit strangers doing their own thing. I think I can count on him to be responsible and also not let the other kids push him into doing anything TOO dangerous. How old have you folks'kids been at this juncture?
