The Net Worth Of The Cast Of Parks and Recreation

Though hit television series Parks and Recreation ended back in 2015, it had such a cultural impact that many people still love to watch the show over and over again.

Starring a mixture of acting veterans and fresh faces just breaking out into the world of comedy, Parks and Recreation followed the bumbling staff of the Parks Department in a fictional Indiana town.

Over its seven-season run, the show was nominated for fourteen Emmy's and a Golden Globe. It was also nominated for "Outstanding Achievement in Comedy" by the Television Critics Association multiple times before finally winning the award in 2013. Take a look at the net worths of the stars who brought heart and humor to the iconic show.

10 Retta - $2 million

Retta portrayed the sassy and smart Donna Meagle throughout the entire series. She started out as a recurring character, but audiences liked her so much that she was made a regular by the third season.

Retta worked as a chemist and a stand-up comedian before finally taking the leap and moving to Los Angeles. She did some guest spots on other comedy shows before finally getting her big break when she was cast as Donna. After Parks, she went on to star in the NBC series Good Girls. Her current net worth is $2 million.

9 Jim O'Heir - $4 million

Comedy and acting have always been Jim O'Heir's passion and he was super active in the theatre and improv comedy scene in Chicago during the '80s and '90s. He made a name for himself in the theatre world by starring in many plays and performing in comedy troupes but didn't transition to television until the '90s and 2000s.

He made guest spots on the hottest comedies of the time, like Friends and Boston Legal. However, he didn't see mainstream success until landing the role of the sweet, overlooked Parks employee Jerry Gergich. Since the show has ended, Jim continues to make guest appearances on popular shows. His current net worth is $4 million.

8 Nick Offerman - $4 million

Nick Offerman may have portrayed the burly and stoic Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, but in real life, he's much more laidback.

Nick also started off doing theatre work in Chicago during the '90s, but quickly landed guest spots on hit shows like Will & Grace, The King of Queens, 24, The West Wing, George Lopez, Gilmore Girls, Monk, and more.

He's also been in quite a few box office successes, like 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie. As of now, he does stand-up comedy tours and has a side job as a wood craftsman. His current net worth is $4 million.

7 Aubrey Plaza - $6 million

Performing has always been Aubrey Plaza's thing, seeing as she graduated from Tisch School of the Arts in 2006. She mainly focused on sketch comedy and improv before getting a role in the movie Funny People. She then went on to score roles in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Mystery Team.

After being cast on Parks and Recreation as April Ludgate, the sullen young girl with a secret nice side, Aubrey shot to stardom. She has since starred in multiple movies, her most recent one being the reboot of the horror movie Child's Play. Her net worth is currently $6 million.

6 Adam Scott - $8 million

Adam Scott has been working consistently in film since the '90s. He graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts before appearing in films like Hellraiser: Bloodline and Star Trek: First Contact. He also had a television career, with appearances on Boy Meets World, Party of Five, and Six Feet Under among numerous others.

His biggest role to date has been Ben Wyatt, the dorky yet charismatic love interest on Parks. Since the show ended in 2015, Adam has gone on to appear in The Good Place and Big Little Lies. His current net worth is $8 million.

5 Aziz Ansari - $18 million

Aziz Ansari had already made a name for himself in stand-up comedy before being cast as the quirky Tom Haverford in Parks and Recreation. The television role opened enough doors for him to flex his comedy and writing skills in his own television show, Master of None.

Aziz has directed multiple episodes of the series, and Master of None has since been nominated for four Emmy's, eventually winning one for "Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series."

In 2018, Aziz was the first Asian-American actor to win a Golden Globe for acting in television. He still does stand-up comedy, with his latest special having debuted on Netflix this year. His net worth is $18 million.

4 Rashida Jones - $25 million

Rashida Jones has always known the ins and outs of the entertainment industry, seeing as her parents are Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones! Rashida got her education out of the way first, graduating from Harvard in 1997.

She landed her first big role on the show Boston Public and went on to star in some smaller roles before scoring another recurring guest spot on The Office. She then starred in the movie I Love You, Man before landing the role of the loyal Ann Perkins on Parks.

After that ended, her next big TV role was the title character in the comedy Angie Tribeca. She continues to act as well as produce, direct, and write. Her current net worth is $25 million.

3 Amy Poehler - $25 million

The woman who started it all! Amy Poehler not only starred as the silly and optimistic Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation but she also worked as a producer on the show.

Like many other members of the cast, Amy started out doing sketch comedy and improv in Chicago in the 90s. Her big break was in 2001 when she was cast on Saturday Night Live. She quickly became a fan favorite, and Parks creators Greg Daniels and Michael Schur conceived of the show with her in mind.

Amy continues to act in both movies and television as well as produce through her own production company, Paper Kite Productions. Her current net worth is $25 million.

2 Chris Pratt - $40 million

It's hard to believe movie star heartthrob Chris Pratt was once a struggling actor, waiting tables while auditioning for guest spots. When he was cast as the goofy and loveable Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation, he was only supposed to be there for a brief stint. The producers liked him so much, however, that he became a main character.

Chris went on to star in Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty but became an A-lister after landing the role of Peter Quill in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. He's gone on to star in a rebooted Jurassic Park franchise and is considered a hot commodity in the film industry now! His estimated net worth is $40 million.

1 Rob Lowe - $60 million

It makes sense that Rob Lowe, who portrayed the cheery Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation, has the highest net worth of the cast. After all, his career has been around the longest!

His first role was in 1983 in the TV movie Thursday's Child, for which he won a Golden Globe. He then went in to star in classics like The Outsiders and St. Elmo's Fire. He was able to successfully transition to television in 1999, starring in The West Wing (a role for which he won numerous awards.)

His role in Parks introduced him to a whole new generation of people, and in 2015 he was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His net worth sits at $60 million.
