If it's a pure park board you're looking for, check out some of the GNU ones. They have mangetraction where a lot of ppl say you can detune the whole edge and it will still carve good because of the serations.

IMO...the Skate Banana got a rep for being a "park board" only because it was like the only RC board out there and good for presses and forgiveness I guess, but it just carried that rep because of the popularity of the board. Nowadays, RC is a dime a dozen and come in various forms with models more geared toward that type of specific riding. But they kept the SB the same which imo is more of a switch riding jack of all trades turning machine.
