    Re: forms of verbs

    yeah, i would write. "when i walked past the park, i saw some children playing football". I wonder if we could use "was walking"/"play"?

    Re: forms of verbs

    so we could use either "was walking" and "walked" but, in this sentence, we just can use "playing".

    Yes.

    Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
