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

Recently rewatched the whole series yet again. Still found it as engaging as the first time I watched it. I find the all cast/characters share the limelight at one stage or another in this mockumentary style comedy series. The seventh season doesn't share the same tone as the other seasons, but forgivable nonetheless.
