I stopped by the Renton park the other day, even though I can't skate with a sprained ankle. Lots of round hips and pockets, a gay launcher bowl in the middle, a tiny funbox with the typical seatac ledges, and a miniramp that waterfalls into a 9 or 10 foot bowl.
The good thing is that all of the coping is nice, and the "river" obstacle thing will be great for landspeed stunts.
The bad thing is that the miniramp has large jagged rocks sticking into the side of it, so don't even think of slamming. The gay launcher bowl has a landing pad that can be overshot by anybody who's been riding for more than a year.
