Question Socialising adopted dog??

Hi everyone,
I am new to this site but I thought this might be the best place to get some help.

I adopted a 6 year old female german shepard last week. She is very gentle, well behaived and obedient. Except when around other dogs.
If we are near another dog while on a walk she will bark and pull on her lead.
There was one incident when she slipped past me and ran accross the street of my house to a passing dog, she barked rather aggressivly and was all over the dog but did not bite (which I am taking as a good sign).

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on socialising her with other dogs?
We live 3 houses down from a great dog park and I would love to take her there and let her play, but I feel we are quite a while off that goal.

Any advise or examples would be greatly appreciated
