Comedian Aziz Ansari mows lawn in Central Park
Comedian Aziz Ansari helps get NYC's Central Park ready for spring by mowing lawn
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' "Parks and Recreation" star Aziz Ansari takes his parks persona seriously.

On Monday, the actor and comedian helped New York City's Central Park get ready for spring by lending a hand mowing its 15-acre Sheep Meadow on a riding lawn mower. Ansari was assisted by several park crew members, also riding lawn mowers.

Central Park Conservancy spokeswoman Dena Libner says Ansari helped mow about an acre of the lawn. It's used for relaxing and sunbathing.

The city is reopening all of its park lawns and ball fields on Saturday. They're fenced during the off-season so the grass can be hearty in the spring.

Central Park gets more than 250,000 visitors a day.

Ansari portrays parks employee Tom Haverford on the NBC comedy show.
