Girls Athletic Leadership School comes to Del Pueblo

Betsy Barrow, the School Manager & Enrollment Coordinator, writes to tell us:

What is Girls Athletic Leadership School (GALS)?

GALS Denver is a Denver Public Schools middle school serving girls in grades 6 - 8. Located in central Denver, GALS provides a college preparatory education in a supportive environment that fosters the academic mastery and personal development necessary for every young woman to become a powerful advocate for herself and leader of her community.

Del Pueblo School


700 Galapago
Denver, CO

Del Pueblo Elementary School is just outside of Baker at 7th and Galapago.

Divino Wine & Spirits

Divino Wine and Spirits is only a block and a half beyond the southern border of the Baker Neighborhood, but its owner, Dave Moore, is a neighborhood resident.

And, for April of 2011 Dave was selected as the Bike Denver Bike Hero. From the article:

Dave opened his super snazzy south-central Denver wine shop, Divino, (1240 S. Broadway) in 2003, and has been riding his bike to work from his home in Baker ever since. Dave humbly says his commute is only two miles each way

Baker's westernmost residents live here

this encampment is as far west as anyone resides in Baker at the moment; it is located on the hill between Phil Milstein Park and the 6th Ave to southbound I-25 on-ramp in the far northwestern corner of the Baker Neighborhood; this spot is more or less aligned with 5th Ave., so it is not Baker's northernmost residence

under the white tarp is where people sleep; nearby are piles of bike parts and other items, some protected by tarps and some strewn down the hill into the brush

Baker's southernmost residents live here

this tent, a few feet from Baker's extreme southwest corner at the Mississippi Avenue bridge over South Platte River, surely houses Baker's southernmost residents; at the time of the snapshot no one was home at this very vulnerable-looking campsite, close to rushing traffic on both the bridge and northbound Santa Fe Dr.

Logan Liquor is perhaps the best selection of decent beer and wine near residential Baker. It carries and rotates notable microbrews and has a fairly decent wine section. If you're feeling lazy, go through the drive through!

River South Greenway Master Plan

Baker's western boundary is the South Platte River, and of all Denver's neighborhoods Baker may have the longest frontage on the river; yet due to the Valley Highway (I-25), Santa Fe Drive and the railroad, Baker's riverfront is almost completely inaccessible
