If strictly for park, no kickers and pipe, then the 148 shouldn't be too bad. keep in mind it will flex like a mother given your weight.

I'm 5'11, 145 and I ride a 147.

Depending on the slope, you'll be fine. Where are you located? If your mountain is more of a hill, then you'll be ok.

life IS good.

I'm 6'1 and 160lbs and I ride boards in the 170's what do you have to say to that?

If you're looking for a soft park deck to dork around on and abuse get it and be stoked. Just don't expect to be gaping 40 footers on it.

thats tinnyyy. and 225 isnt that amazing of a deal, theres better deals out there on boards that will fit you better. dont do it, youll regret it.
im about the same size as you, 160. 6'0''. smallest i would go is a 155, maybee 154.
