Deno's Kiddie Park on the Boardwalk in Coney Island opened for visitors Saturday, another sign that summer days are not that far away.

It is open again Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

Some early visitors said they couldn't wait to get there to shake off the winter blues.

"Last time, my mom said, 'When it's a sunny day, we'll come.' And now it's a sunny day, so we're here," said one visitor.

"We actually didn't know today was the first day that they were open," said another. "We were thinking we were just going to be walking around, so it kind of works out."

Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park officially opens next weekend, and the owners say the first 100 people who come will get to ride the wheel for free.
