On April 9, 2009, NBC debuted a new workplace sitcom from The Office creator Greg Daniels and executive producer Mike Schur called Parks and Recreation. Set in the small town of Pawnee, Indiana, the series followed the government employees working in the city’s parks and recreation department — particularly the eager do-gooder Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and her gruff mustachioed boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman).

While it took a season or so for the show to settle into itself, the series soon became, along with The Office, one of NBC’s most beloved sitcoms, introducing audiences to the rest of the eccentric residents of Pawnee and the civil servants doing their best to keep order in the city. On the tenth anniversary of its debut, let’s take a look back at the show’s main cast members and what they’ve been up to in the decade since its premiere.
