That scenario is not possible with the way that Confluence does permissions. If you do not have view permissions to the parent page you cannot view the child pages. Page that you cannot view don't even show in the nav bar. So,if you think about it how would the child page show in the nav bar if you could not view the parent page? You would not be able to find the child page except through search if they allowed that scenario.

Are there any plans to enhance permission scheme in future to allow access to only specific page(s) in a space w/o granting space permisson? I have seen request from others on the same.

You can give access to only specific pages, but only in branches. It's kinda wonky, but the way you have to set it up is with multiple groups. You give all the groups that could get to the space at least view access. Then you structure your nav into branches where. One branch might be public that everyone can see and another would have content that only certain people can see. The public branch you leave alone without any restrictions. The secured content you give a view restriction to the people that you want to be able to see it. Any thing under that branch will be viewable by only the people who have access to it. It would look like this when laid out in the space navigation.

Space Home
|
|- Public Content (No restrictions)
   |- Public Content (No restrictions)
|- Public Content (No restrictions)
|- Secured Content (View restriction set to group that can see this stuff)
   |- Secured Content (Inherits view restriction from parent)
      |- Secured Content (Inherits view restriction from grandparent)
      |- Secured Content (Inherits view restriction from grandparent)
   |- Secured Content (Inherits view restriction from parent)
