The play you described while at the park is rude, trying to get a rise out of dogs and barking at them when they ignore her is inappropriate play and has perhaps been reinforced by you allowing it. Sometimes a dogs warnings are slight and going to parks requires close observations for these warnings, and if your dog is not respecting those warnings it's your job to intervene and correct it so the other dog is not stressed. Your responsibility to other park goers is to remove your dog if play interactions become inappropriate, and this is going to be the same at home. Keep a short traffic lead on Gormley at home and at the park so you can easily gain physical control of your dog when needed and correct the behavior.
