"I think I have a great case to show negligence on the park behalf"....you simply dion't have the knowlegde base to credibly make such a claim. Given the facts presented I would suggest quite the contrary as there are NUMEROUS hurdles you will have to overcome and governmental entities rarely settle unless THEY find they were negligent and injuries substantial. If you have a good case  then injury lawyers will take it on a contingent fee to hhandle it properly. If they decline it - that tells you what lawyers think about "a great case".
