Explore North Park is an out-of-market, tourism marketing campaign, supported by a grant from the City of San Diego’s Economic Development Department. The goal of Explore North Park is to market this vibrant community as a destination for San Diego visitors. Of course, Explore North Park wouldn’t be what it is without dedicated, experienced and creative contributors! Want to know who’s behind the scenes of Explore North Park?

Angela Landsberg, a native San Diegan, grew up in the neighborhood of North Park. She began her position as Executive Director of North Park Main Street in 2011 after years of work in the community. Landsberg started working in communities in San Diego in 1995, serving as a legislative aid for Councilwoman Christine Kehoe. Angela enjoys all that her city has to offer by spending time at the beach and parks with her husband and two daughters.
Anna Gamboa, Creative Director and Partner of A7D Creative Group, has been actively behind the re-brand of North Park as a San Diego destination. She grants much of North Park’s growth to the unconditional support and camaraderie from her fellow North Park business owners. Without thoughtfulness and creativity each business owner lends to North Park as a whole, the community would not be what it is today.
Jillian Wolter has made San Diego her home for the past seven years. She has profound gratitude for San Diego’s healthy, vibrant community and the people who work hard to keep it that way. A graduate of the UCSD Urban Studies and Planning program, she is committed to strengthening communities and improving quality of life during her career.
