We have the kind that have a swinging door. Ours came from Mothercare in the UK, but I've since seen similar ones in Canada and the US. You have to lift the door before you can swing it, but a 4 year old could do it for sure. Ours also have a locking mechanism that a four year old could not do so it's possible to use the gate to keep out all small children, or just babies.
The thing I like about these gates is that since it's so easy to open the door you aren't incline to step over the gate (and trip) or take the gate down because it's in the way and forget to put it back up.
I'll see if I can find a picture.
