I live in a gated apartment with my husband, 4 yr old and 5 yr old need advice about the playground

I live in a gated apartment complex with a playground on site, the playground is on the other side in the complex from my apartment and we have to cross the drive/road leading in and out of the apartments. My kids are very busy and love to go outside to play then stay inside. What age do you think is a good age to let them go to the playground by themselves. I am a stay at home mom and just wanted some positive feedback of what other mom's input was. Thanks

I wouldn't let my kids go on their own until my younger son is at least 8, which would make my other son 10 and that is with it being gated. If it wasn't gated, it would probably be more, maybe 12. This is my opinion now though, it could change once my kids are older.

I wouldn't let them go on their own until at least the age of 10 but it does depend on their maturity but 4 and 5 I feel is way to young.
