Mosquitoes at Greer Park

Has anyone noticed how terrible the mosquitoes have become at Greer Park? My daughter was playing soccer there this morning and came home covered in bites. I walked the dogs round - not even across the grass - and also came home with many bites. Plus you can see clouds of them rising up if you disturb the ivy etc.
I spoke to a gardener there this morning to express my concern that the over-watering of the grass (it's soaking) was contributing to the problem and he claimed that the wetness of the grass had nothing to do with the mosquito population. But the Santa Clara County Vector Control website says overwatered lawn is definitely a breeding ground.
If you are going to be at Greer for any amount of time, wear bug spray!
