Safe from me in Canberra, I limit my Editing to S.A. ;)

Actually the the very problem you're facing here is the very reason why
I ended up opting for separate parallel ways when doing things like
parks, it just makes managing everything a lot easier despite the fact
it's more work to setup. Like I said before in these cases there
seems to be no real guidelines just preferences of people.

I find (at least in OSM) the trick to selecting a way like that is to
do a drag select across and area covering that particular way (and of
course you'll get a few points and maybe a few other ways also) and
then selecting the way you actually want to edit from the 'current
selection' window.
