went for a stroll in the park
walk "in" the park,Alpha0ne said:Hi Art,
I have been brought up with it, perhaps it's not "proper English" but in every day jargon it sounds fine to me. Let's see if anyone else gives their opinion later.
You mean is "a stroll in the park" correct?Artrella said:Hi Alpha0ne!! So it is correct to say "in" ???

The thing is, if you say "we went for a stroll/walk around the park" you're inadvertantly advertising that you actually walked AROUND the park... meaning you either went all the way around the outside of it, or you covered just about the whole park. I mean, that's very precise though, because if someone said to me "around" or "in", I wouldn't make that distinction. They basically have the same meaning, even though technically each one is different, just as "A stroll through the park" would mean the same in regular speech, even though it really means you were walking already and went through the park as part of your route, not that your entire walk was in the park.
At any rate, around/in/through all pretty much work fine. Hope that doesn't confuse more.
Sí, está bien.Artrella said:No, my question was referred to "city".
I understand "stroll in the park" because you are in the park actually.
But it didn't sound good to me to say "take a walk in the city" but rather "around the city".
Is it ok? Thx Cristóbal!
That's it, Art. I was also doubtful about in/around concernig the city.Artrella said:No, my question was referred to "city".
