A simple search came up with all of this about dog parks:
Yep – I am not a fan of dog parks – at all !
How much training have you actually done with Serena ?
Maybe it is time to remind her - via training - that you make the decisions and not her.
Have a look at these links for ways to help you:

Have a good look around Kikopup’s site - She has videos covering just about any question you may have about pups.
So look up things like: behavioural interrupters; Triangle of Temptation (TOT) and Nothing in Life is Free (NILIF), teaching calm; leave it; let’s go.
The old saying – ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ – is probably really apt here with Serena and this particular dog park. It is her regular haunt and she is behaving like she owns the place – which happens with all pups.
Mix your exercise routines up a bit. Are there any other places you can take the pups ? Because another old saying is - 'variety is the spice of life' !
