Hey all - "the noob" or, as SunCzarina refers to as possibly being the "...one person in 100 who makes the breed look bad", is back. :-)
We stopped going to the dog parks for about a month and continued to play with friend's dogs in nearby fields, eventually reintroducing the dog parks. While at the parks I remained ultra vigilant in watching Leo (not that I never was, this time it just involved basically stalking him the whole time) and we were able to work out the issue. Any time a pack of dogs started to play roughly I would recall Leo and I would make him sit by me until the pack dispersed. It wasn't too long before he started looking directly at me any time a pack of dogs got together and started to get rough. At this point, in that situation, I either recall or in a lot of cases he will just run away from the pack and toward me. Seriously, these dogs are so amazing.
I did switch up the parks though too... I stopped going to the park where we had most of our issues and found a new one that has a great layout and a lot of great people and pups. We've gone at least twice a week for the lat 4 months or so. Leo spends most of his time cowering from the Great Danes (bad experience when he was a pup) or herding the Poodles... but overall it's a great experience and I am happy to have this option again for exercise and socialization.

Mine about a noob leaving? Read back in the OPs post a few before it then back to where she said she was leaving unless people were nice to her. Oh the drama.
After saying this her first GSD, they treat it like a child and countering all advice with (my SIC) "but I get great advice from the people at the dog park who don't mind my dog chewing on their dog"
Well Okay Then! Off you go and good luck with that. Please don't be the one person in 100 who makes the breed look bad.
