One Park – One Team
A program designed to connect Balboa Park organizations to celebrate our team members and encourage partnerships and collaborations.
This year’s Heart in the Park award is in Honor of Gabe Selak who passed away in April of 2017. Gabe was Mr. San Diego History. Gabe’s extensive knowledge and passion for Balboa Park brought history to life for thousands of visitors and residents alike. He worked tirelessly to educate the public and unite the Park. He is the Heart of Balboa Park, today, tomorrow, and always.
