Parks & Recreation: You'll Never 100% This Leslie Knope Quiz

How well do you know the Deputy Director of the Parks Department?


What would Parks and Recreation have ever become without its tirelessly committed public servant protagonist Leslie Knope?

Played impeccably by the inimitable Amy Poehler, Leslie brought an over-the-odds dedication to her work as the Deputy Director of Pawnee's Parks Department, and was effectively the type of person we all wish actually worked for the government.

While Leslie may not have garnered quite the same demented laughs as, say, April Ludgate or Ron Swanson, she was absolutely the show's beating heart and soaring soul: a deeply decent human being with a fleet of snazzy quirks to boot.

But Leslie achieved so much and laid herself so thoroughly bare over the course of the show's seven seasons that you'd be forgiven for forgetting at least as much as you've remembered about her.

And so, you'll need to be a die-hard Leslie Knope obsessive to get anywhere close to 100% on this quiz about her personal life, her favourite things, and those one-off remarks you probably never gave much thought.

The answers are at the end as ever, so good luck!
