I really enjoy my time at the park most of the time. Most of the people who attend mine are awesome and take great care to watch their dogs. These were just two incidents out of several, several visits.
Normally I'd avoid the dog park, but I have no other place to let Corey have off-leash play time. And, after observing my dog, I know she's extremely non-confrontational and moves away from squabbles at the park. She likes other dogs, but mostly she wants to be able to run a couple times a week.
If I had a better place for her to run, I'd skip the park, but it's my only option. And luckily, most of the time, it's a great experience. And even when it's not, my dog avoids the conflicts and returns to me so we can leave.
