    "would" to refer to habitually repeated actions

    Dear all,

    I understand "would" can be used to refer to habitually repeated actions.

    e.g. As a child, I would often come to this park and played with my friends.

    If so, is it possible to ask this way?

    "Would you often come here on weekends and have fun with your friends?

    Thank you!

    OP
