We miss Leslie Knope and the hilarious antics of her team and the rival town of Eagleton. Reminisce about the good ol' days of "Parks and Recreation" and see which town wins out in the end — come on, you know it's Pawnee!
Pawnee was established in May 1817. By July, wealthy Pawneeans fled, because of the unpleasant smell and untenable soil, and founded Eagleton.
That was Pawnee. It also landed on No. 4 as the Most Obese City.
City Councilman Bill Dexhart worked to better the community for single mothers, nurses, waitresses and yoga instructors in Pawnee.
Pawnee Commons was the name Leslie selected for the park she wanted to build on Lot 48.
Despite what she says, Leslie Knope was born in Eagleton.
True. That's because Eagleton sits on top of a hot spring that creates a "micro-climate zone." Of course.
Gernway is the city manager for Eagleton. He and Leslie Knope once went on a blind date.
Leslie is enamored with Wreston St. James until she finds out he is from Eagleton.
After being fired from his job as president of the Sweetums Foundation, Ben Wyatt comes up with the strategy fantasy game Cones of Dunshire. In a flash-forward to 2022, we find out that Ben created a sequel to the game called Cones of Dunshire, The Adventure Continues: The Winds of Tremorrah.
Ben Wyatt was the mayor of Partridge, which he bankrupted while in office by creating a winter sports complex called Ice Town.
Lindsay Carlisle Shay is the deputy parks director for the Parks and Recreation Department in Eagleton. Leslie Knope turned down a job with Eagleton's Parks and Recreation Department, but Lindsay went behind her back and accepted it.
Ken Hotate is the leader of the Wamapoke tribe, which originally owned the land in Pawnee until the Reverend Luther Howell of Terre Haute planted a flag in the ground and claimed it.
True. Leslie Knope believes Lindsay Carlisle Shay is behind building the fence and seeks revenge by getting her parks employees to throw garbage over into Eagleton.
True. Jerry Gergich and his stunning wife (played by Christie Brinkley) also have three equally beautiful daughters: Millicent, Miriam and Gladys.
That would be Eagleton, whose city planners requested the assistance of Pawnee to prevent its collapse.
False! This is Leslie Knope we're talking about. Instead of relishing in Eagleton's pain, Leslie announces that Pawnee will absorb Eagleton and some of its debt in order to save the city from ruin. It's the neighborly thing to do, after all.
Ingrid de Forest was once a councilwoman in Eagleton. She replaced Leslie Knope on Pawnee's city council.
True. Ron Swanson stays on as head of the Pawnee Parks and Rec Department. Hippie/vegan Ron Dunn, Ron Swanson's counterpart from Eagleton, isn't as lucky, and loses his.
Ann Perkins and Pawnee City Manager Chris Traeger leave Pawnee to raise their child in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Donna Meagle is a licensed real estate agent. Her firm is called Regal Meagle Realty, and its motto is "Find Your Castle."
Andy Dwyer's band has been through many, MANY iterations, including The Andy Andy Andys and Nothing Rhymes with Orange. One Door Down wasn't one of the names, however, Two Doors Down was.
Of course Li'l Sebastian was from Pawnee. At one time he was the eighth-most-photographed thing in America, beating out the Alamo.
Tom Haverford did pitch SnakeJuice (which failed) and mentioned H2HO. But he never talked about In-be-Tweens, tuxedos for 'tweens. We made that up. He did, however, talk about a tuxedo line for babies.
True! Duke Silver is the stage name Ron Swanson created so he could moonlight as a musician.
Cozy's Bar is actually located in Eagleton.
Perd Hapley has hosted shows called "Are You There Perd-verts? It's Me Perd, Hosting a New Segment" and "Ya Heard? With Perd!," but not "I'm Perd Hapley."
Ron Swanson's first wife was Tammy 1; his second wife and third wife was Tammy 2. He divorced her twice.
False. Tammy 2 is the deputy director of library services in Pawnee.
Leslie Knope gets a job in the senior executive service candidate development program at the Interior Department.
True. In the series finale, we flash-forward to 2035 where two-term governor Leslie Knope is receiving an honorary doctorate from Indiana University.
