NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – With temperatures in the 80s, New Yorkers spent the day Saturday basking in the sun, biking in the park and snacking on sweet treats.

“Happy,” one little girl told CBS2’s Reena Roy in Central Park. “Because I like to play all the time.”

It’s especially fun when there’s cause for celebration – quality time with the family on Father’s Day weekend.

“It’s a beautiful day to hang out in the park,” one person said. “We came here to enjoy a picnic.”
