“Ella está viniendo” versus “ella viene a” unirse a mi en parque

Hi everyone! I am trying to say “she is coming to join me at the park” as it is happening – my friend called, learned i was at the park and now she is coming to meet me. So the same way I use the progressive present to say estoy aprendiendo español” i did the same for the verb venir. When I checked it Google said it should be “Ella viene a unirse…”

Can someone explain why you wouldn’t use the progressive present and what’s used instead to say “viene a “?

Thank you so much!
