Is the word order obligatory or could one say: Ben onu parktan alıyorum. ?

that's fine too. they all emphasize different things

To be more specific, usually the second to last part is what is being emphasized.

"Ben onu parktan alıyorum" makes clear that you're taking him from the park.

"Onu parktan ben alıyorum" emphasizes that yes, I had to take him from the park.
