If you want it to look as good as new you will have to take it to a shop.
YOu could try a bit of rubbing compound and lightly work the area? Thats too big an area for touch up paint.

use dishsoap first, then rubbing compound maybe followed by swirl remover. If u wanted to get creative id suggest a nice wax after..my park avenue had that on the paint its self.

That looks like it is down to the primer. I don't think any polish or compound would help.

Don't laugh but maybe try a black Sharpie marker to fill in some of the scratches?? Thats worth a try before spending $300 to get the bumper repainted.
