I have been in the parks almost every weekend for the past two months and haven't seen flies. I recommend wearing Off! Or another repellent if you're out at night during the summer here.
We are locals as well who go weekly (usually on Tues or Wednesday). I can attest to people saying these are FLIES, not love bugs. These were honest-to-goodness FLIES (small house fly). They were really bad by Casey's as well as by Buzz. Our stroller was literally swarmed with them. It was disgusting to try and shoo away hundreds of flies from our stroller. Even the CMs were saying stuff to us and apologizing for them.

To be honest, it is kind of rude to "not discount" someone stories, but certainly imply that people are wrong in what they are seeing and dealing with. Just because you weren't there/or didn't see them, doesn't mean that everyone who had to deal with them were incorrect.
