Default Going to a Park for the First Time; Any Pointers?

Right, so I'm feeling comfortable enough to go to a park for the first time--I've been using an ordinary, local hill so far--this Saturday. Before I head out, though, I was wondering if you guys could give a snowboarding noob some pointers for their first park experience.

I'm still working on stopping properly, which pretty much means coming to a complete stop without any part of my body touching the powder - my go-to move to stop is simply wiping out

Turning is "okay," I suppose: I'm not in complete control of where I want to go, but I can generally point my nose in the right direction.

Kinda nervous about the lift because I have never ridden one. (Huh... I've jumped out of a perfectly-good airplane but haven't ridden a chair lift )

Thanks for the help, everyone. It means a lot!
