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.

Good:
The street section is just a funbox, but the ledges and rail are at a pretty good height and can be kind of fun. The rest of the main park has really nice flow. It only takes a few minutes to figure out the good lines and you can't really notice that the concrete is a little bumpy at speed.

Bad:
The mini ramp tranny is steep, and rough, kind of hard to skate, and the bowl that it connects to is bumpy as hell. I have never encountered bumpier tranny in my life. The park also feels crowded pretty quick, because most of the good lines flow around the entire park and intersect one another. Bikers don't help that either. Lots of little kids come during the day too. Its also not in a super nice area, so coming at night can be a little dangerous. I've only had to leave once though.

All in all, a sweet park if you like to pump and grind around, when its not crowded.
