A cadre that Shendell calls her "Roll Patrol" frequent the park to make sure that everyone's wearing helmet or help with clinics or just give out some on the spot advice.
Walking along behind her daughter who's already rolling on a two wheeler at 3 years old, Tara Pawlowksi said the park has opened a whole new world for her son, Oliver, 7. When he's not at the park, riding on his BMX bike, skateboarding, sleeping or at school, he's watching YouTube videos to learn the newest trick he wants to try, she said.
Zsombi Galantai, 38, said he's thankful he lives just five minutes away from the park. He said he was watching it get assembled piece by piece, waiting for the days he could get his BMX bike out on a regular basis. Now he's there at least once a week.
After Oliver shook his head, Donavan broke it down for him: "Bend your knees and twist."
Oliver hasn't quite mastered the grind when skateboarders slide along a surface without using the wheels. But he's definitely picking up some shredding moves (that means he's really good) to the point that he's willing to sacrifice his allowance for the daily $5 park admission, Pawlowski said.

Getting to last September's opening was an uphill pedal that lasted five years, with longtime West Boca Community Council member Al Grubow guiding it along the twists and turns to completion. He died April 10, but a plaque Nike Uptempo More Money
And his sister, Gwynn, has enough gusto to get up clay hills that are almost as tall as she is.
"I love this park, it's got tons of obstacles, tons of versatility," said Mead, who's skateboarding skill has gotten him into videos with pop singer Rihanna.
In its seven months since opening, the complex has drawn nearly 3,000 people to come and sign the customary waiver that absolves these operations of any responsibility should an accident occur, the president of the nonprofit that runs it says. That compares to the 300 to 400 currently signed up to use the city run Tim Huxhold Skate Park in Boca Raton that's been open since 1998. At Brian Piccolo Park in Cooper City, 1,894 signed waivers in the last fiscal year to BMX, skateboard or in line skate.
The Drop In Sports Complex got its name from a skateboarding term for what comes after you go down the ramp. And also by how people come whenever they want, with whatever wheels they feel like using.
"Can you do a 180?" Donavan Falduto, 14, asked Oliver.
Daily attendance at the sports complex averages 30 to 40 on the weekdays; about 60 to 70 on the weekends, Shendell says. It's enough that the complex has hosted a number of competitions. And organized fundraisers for organizations such as The Giving Tree, which organizes gift giving for needy kids.
"I don't do any of this," she said, responding to a question of whether she's a BMXer, a skater or on a scooter. She explains why she put up her own money to build the park like this: "My thing is the smiles on the faces of parents and the kids."
