Originally titled “Public Service,” the TV comedy “Parks and Recreation” was supposed to be a spin-off of “The Office.”
The writers decided to keep the mockumentary format but let the show stand on its own — with great success!
During its seven seasons, “Parks and Recreation” received 14 Emmy nominations and a Peabody Award, among others.
“Parks and Recreation” is one of the best-loved TV comedies of all time, and whether you’re attending a specific “Parks and Rec” trivia night or just wanted a Pawnee-themed name for your trivia team, everyone is sure to love your team name!

How to Create Your Own Parks and Rec Trivia Team Names
Create your own great Parks and Recreation trivia team names using the following tips:
- Get inspiration from your favorite quotes. “Parks and Rec” is packed full of hilarious and iconic quotes. Get together with your team, collect your favorites, and then see which ones work best as team names or could be easily adapted into team names.
- Reference your team’s favorite character. Do you look up to Leslie Knope, Pawnee’s favorite waffle-loving bureaucrat, or do you relate more to the cynical April Ludgate? Have your team vote to decide on a favorite character (if you don’t already share the same favorite), then use some element of that character’s personality or plot lines to create a team name.
- Look at “Parks and Rec” episode titles. While not as instantly recognizable as the show’s iconic quotes, “Parks and Rec” episodes have great titles that can be used to create team names. Examples from our list include “Sister City,” “Christmas Scandal,” and “Freddy Spaghetti.” Choose a favorite episode, or just scroll through a complete list of episodes online and see which titles catch your eye.
