Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park. However, what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape, and a myriad of other challenges. Leslie's colleague Tom Haverford, who delights in exploiting his position for personal gain, is as likely to undermine her efforts as to help her, while her boss, Ron Swanson, is adamantly opposed to government in any form, even though he's a bureaucrat.Written by
In season 5 episode 8, Leslie says that they don't have any plans for the park and if they don't get any then they won't get the park. However, in the last episode of season two, Mark Brendanawicz gave her plans to build the park. See more »
Indianapolis is less than 3 hours traveling time from all of the major cities in the state of Indiana. Since Pawnee is clearly large enough to have a Parks and Recreation department, as well as its own television station, it is clearly a major Indiana city and thus should be closer to the state capital.

Before watching this show, I thought The Office was my favorite sitcom. Parks & Rec has now taken that title. After a rougher first season, each of the characters brings several laughs in every episode.
If you only want to watch the glory moments, stop watching after season 5. Season 6 and 7 are still funny, but not at the level of the previous seasons.
