The park is liable when a person falls due to the negligence of the park owners, which typically means their failure to correct or warn parkgoers an unsafe condition in the park that they knew or should have known about. Examples of unsafe conditions would be:
So, in your case, it really comes down to whether those rocks are in a place where people are allowed to climb or walk on them, what caused them to be slippery, and whether the park posted signs telling people to proceed with caution. If the rocks are in a main walkway and there are no warning signs, the park could be liable for injury. Any local attorney could help you reach out to them.

If someone is stalking you, contact the police. The park is only responsible for negligence of employees, not intentional criminal acts.
Legally speaking, an employer is only liable for negligent behavior of employees committed within the scope of their duties. They're not responsible for criminal acts that an employee happens to commit, because that's not part of the employee's job. There's no law that says, by hiring someone, you become responsible for anything they do.
If this man directly caused your fall, you may be able to argue that the park is responsible for your injuries because they negligently failed to take action against a dangerous employee.
