I'm not so sure. I am unaware of any authority of the police to decide which individuals may step onto public property absent unpermitted parades, etc.
My understanding is that the original interaction was with private security on the park payroll, who then contacted law enforcement. I'm not sure if the security guard had the authority to make that call, but we're not sure yet if the gun was the only reason for this confrontation.
