Through creating hilarity while turning a pit into a park to honoring the lasting legacy of Li'l Sebastian, viewers laughed along with the characters of Parks and Recreation for seven hilarious seasons. From the first season's run in 2009 to the seventh season premiering in 2015, the cast has aged right along with the Pawnee Parks and Recreation department. A few Parks and Recreation characters even seemed to have stopped the hands of time thanks to endless exercise and/or the power of bacon.
How old is the cast of Parks and Recreation? Amy Poehler was 37 when she first portrayed Pawnee's favorite daughter Leslie Knope in season one of Parks and Recreation in 2006. After seven seasons as the sugar-loving, optimist, Poehler's style evolved right along with that of Knope. A 33-year-old Rashida Jones first brought the pit problem to the members of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation department's attention as the concerned citizen Ann Perkins in season one.
Long before he was flying through space or fighting dinosaurs, a then 30-year-old Chris Pratt portrayed Ann's slacker boyfriend Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation season one. Rob Lowe and Nick Offerman had looks that stayed very consistent throughout the show's run.
