Chairman Eric Adams appointed Prospect Park Alliance president Sue Donoghue the new city parks commissioner.
Donoghue recently served as assistant parks magistrate under previous Mayor Mike Bloomberg and has been credited with tidying up Prospect Park.
Adams likewise named Iris Rodriguez-Rosa, the current Bronx magistrate and veteran in the office, as the main agent parks commissioner.
“Parks are not a luxury, they are a need,” Adams said during a Friday City Hall press conference.
Comptroller Brad Lander, a former Brooklyn councilman who audits city agencies, is such a big fan on Donoghue that he showed up at the press conference to endorse the mayor’s choice.
