Reflexives, double pronouns

After studying these lessons I don’t understand why, for example,

Vous vous aimez promener ici? Is wrong!?

And

Vous aimez vous promener ici? Is correct.

Hi Glen, 

It is because you have two verbs and a question in statement form, 

aimer and se promener, the second pronoun, vous goes in between the two verbs -

Vous voulez vous promener au parc ? Do you want a walk in the park?

But with the inversion of subject and verb  it will be :

Voulez-vous vous promener au parc ?  = Do you want a walk in the park?
Oui, je voudrais me promener au parc Yes, I'd like a walk in the park 

There is a lot more grammar than this explanation in the question, trying to keep it simple, let me know if this helps!
