I would enroll in a puppy class so that you can socialize him with other puppies or I would find some nice people in your neighborhood with well behaved dogs or friends or family members with dogs and have play dates with them.
I agree, just read all the dog park incident threads here. None of my dogs have ever been to one, way too many chances for a bad result.
