I won't give any opinion as to dog parks or training, but will answer your question.
You can get a collar that has a vibrate feature. I think I got mine on Amazon.
I've used it on multiple dogs for different reasons.
I had a young dog, what when out doing yard work, she would grab the hind leg of another dog and start yanking. I'd hit the vibrate mode and it was enough for her to stop, so I could give a verbal command that she would respond to.
Another dog, when we practiced agility in a horse area, would wander off, looking for snacks and turn her ears off.
The vibrate was enough for her to stop what she was doing, look around, and turn her ears back on.
This collar also had a shock and beep mode, but you have to push multiple buttons to switch between the modes, so it wasn't something you could accidentally do.

My dog lives to eat poop. She loves to go to the dog park and enjoys running around with others, but ultimately she's headed for the back 40 where she's scouting for snacks. And I simply can't get there fast enough to stop her. I was thinking that what might work is some sort of remote controlled collar that could deliver a loud and annoying sound if I see her eating.

But I absolutely WILL NOT shock her. She's very sensitive and I suspect a shock would be devastating to her. I saw a couple of collars where the shock mechanism was removable, which sounded great, but one was too expensive and one had no reviews. No thanks. Another one had a feature where you could lock out the shock function so there would be no accidents, but I also heard a recording of the beep it makes, and it's pretty wimpy. Sounds like my oven timer.

And I have to wonder if ALL of these collars with sound will only produce that pleasant beep. I'd really rather something a little more caustic and disturbing.

Is there anything like this out there?
My dog was a poo eater, he suffers with IBD, my vet put him on a dog probiotic to fix his gut, I had to teach him the words "LEAVE IT" you make sure you tell her this behaviour is BAD - YUK - DIRTY & I got a Muzzle, the Muzzle is the only way 100% that will STOP this awful habit, then once she is trained take it off when walking & change walking place, where there isn't any dog poo...
Put her on a dog Probiotic "Purina Forti-Flora" was tested & came 1st it has live cultures, once my dog gut was healthy, his poo eating all stopped also I increased his meals 3-4 smaller meals a day.
Good Luck
