@tanguatlay,
If you are British, I think you would say "A couple ARE strolling in the park.

@roger,
Depends where.

The English spoken in London is not the same as that spoken in Bristol, York, Newcastle, Cardiff, Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Having said that either term would be acceptable.

@tanguatlay,
Be wary of Hightor's answers.

He seems to be of the impression that American English is the only form of English spoken, and as such claims to know more about how I speak than I do.
