Yes, I agree, some dogs just aren't dog park dogs, and that's perfectly okay, just like there are introverted humans and extroverted humans. Most dogs seem to prefer smaller groups of dogs they know or dogs that match their play style. Some don't really want to play with other dogs at all. Sometimes dogs might like dog park like settings when they're young, and sometimes they don't much like it anymore when they reach maturity or as they get older.

For this issue, the best option is to not take the dogs that don't like the dog park. Continuing to force them into the situation is almost guaranteed to make the issue worse.
