    Third Period (1900-1930):

    Plazas:

    All the parks and small squares of Santo Domingo were restructured, reinforcing their function as spaces for the use of the populous.

    • Plaza Colón (previously known as Plaza de Armas). It acquired a distinct profile, characterized by enormous laurels that lavished their shadows and coolness and iron benches painted green.
    • Plaza Independencia (known today as Parque Independencia). Built in 1912, it became a favorite place for sports and competitions. Every Thursday and Sunday, as in the Plaza Colón, "concert nights" or "outing nights" were organized in the plaza.
    • Playground. Located outside Santo Domingo in Ciudad Nueva or the "New City", it became an increasingly popular site for baseball games.
    • El Hipódromo ("The Racetrack"). Built in 1919 on land from the Primavera Ranch.
    • The Plaza Colombina (known today as Parque Eugenio María de Hostos) soon became a great recreational center.
    • The Cuevas de Santa Ana caves. Located in the park known today as the National Conservatory of Music (Conservatorio Nacional de Música), they also served as a recreation site for Santo Domingo families.
