“Am I slowly killing my children”
Above 10C is shorts weather :) , So I’m going to say 17C is more than fine, especially if they are active, doesn’t hurt to pack something warm if there is intermittent wind and cloud, but when the suns out and the wind is low, ambient temperature is much less of a concern.
I spend a lot of time outside being physically active and 17C is SO not scarf and hat weather! Personally I probably wouldn’t even wear long sleeves while working (I work with dogs). I can’t imagine any kid without either a medical condition or a past living somewhere VERY hot would be happy for a scarf and hat for anything above 10C.

I get chilly easily (below 25°C is plausibly jacket conditions), but even I think panel 3 is excessive layers. Especially if they’re active. And let’s face it – it’s a heck of a lot more healthy if they’re active than if they’re sedentary, so the other parents are probably doing more to slowly kill their children than you are to yours here…
No, you are definitely the best. Besides, some kids just run warm and resist extra layers… like my own daughter.
Me: It’s chilly. Here, put on another layer!
DD: No! *takes off a layer and runs across the park*
Me: … Must be all that extra blood flow.
Parents are always cold at the park anyway.
No doubts: you’re good! Also, your kids have hot metabolisms. Not all kids do!
As my mum usually says: A sweater is something a child is made to put on when his mother feels cold
I figure, as long as they don’t feel cold, they’re probably fine. Nobody who’s gotten problems from being too cold has done so because they didn’t realize they were cold.
…while that is true in reasonable-temperature situations like this, “didn’t realize they were cold” is actually a stage of hypothermia. Specifically, the one that precedes “falling asleep.”
