Inquirer: City to get new parks commissioner

The secretary of Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Michael DiBerardinis, has just announced his resignation from that post in order to return to his native Philadelphia to become the head of the city’s new parks and recreation department.
DiBerardinis formerly served as the Commissioner of the Recreation Department under Mayor Rendell. In his capacity as DCNR secretary, he has overseen the Commonwealth’s open space, parks, forests, trees, experience that will suit him well in his new capacity.
