Which "Parks & Recreation" Character are You?
by Teresa M.
NBC

Calling all Pawnee natives! The Parks department needs your help. They're looking to hire a new member for their team and they need you, but where you do you fit in? From Leslie to Ron to Tom, which Parks and Recreation character are you? Let's find out!

In 2009, NBC introduced fans to its new political satire, Parks and Recreation. Starring Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones and Nick Offerman, the series followed the employees of a suburban parks department. With characters like Leslie, Ron, Tom, Ann and April, which of these characters would you be?

Are you known for your leadership? Ron Swanson, played by Nick Offerman, was the man in charge. Director of the Parks department, you could always count on him to get things done! 

For those loyal and passionate, you might be Leslie Knope. Portrayed by Amy Poehler, this character is the most dedicated. If giving up is an unknown concept to you, you might be just like the deputy director.

If you have a flair for fun and money, you're probably just like Tom Haverford. Definitely a go-getter, Tom is all about "treat yo'self!" If you're filled with new ideas and are unafraid to be yourself, you might be a Tom Haverford.

Luckily for you, you don't have to guess who you are! Look no further than this quiz! Are you just like these three main characters, or are you more sarcastic and blunt like April? Are you level-headed and calm like Ann?

With all the characters who've gone through the Parks department in Pawnee, Indiana, let's prove who you're like once and for all!

Lil' Sebastian will thank you!
