Maybe she is allergic to some type of weed or grass, or the park was sprayed with some chemical, if a city park, you should be able to contact the city and check if they did use some kind of ground treatment like a fall weed and feed and with what.

Not sure where you are placed on the planet but could they be an insect bite ? Bees, spiders ? They can all leave large red mounds and if your puppy is allergic to the insect toxin, a "normal" bite would cause a distorted looking result.
