BASKETBALL/ Baloncesto
There are some very good Skateboard parks in Dominican Republic. Here in the Colonial Zone there is one between Jose Gabriel Garcia, Ave. George Washington and Hostos
Montesinos Skate park
Located in the  Park Fuerte de San Jose directly behind the Monument Fray Antón de Montesino. Between the Malecon and Jose Gabriel Garcia. This park had some ramps and you can always find a skater here. They also skate in the main park area. I don't know much about skating but i did enjoy watching the skaters doing their little tricks on the steps in the park and on a metal rail they had.
Played at Sierra in Santo Domingo and at Casa de Campo in La Romana.

There is a public basket ball court on Jose Gabriel Garcia and the Malecon. It is near Parque San Jose in front of the Statue of Montecino. There is usually someone playing ball here and I'm sure if someone wanted to join in a game they would be welcome.

Juego de Bittila
This game is played throughout Dominican Republic in parks, on the street or anyplace where there is room to do so. It is played using the bottle tops of the large water bottles, named bitilla, as the ball and a stick. Many times the stick is a branch from a tree or an old mop handle. It is a team game and looks much like baseball. The players do not run bases as in baseball. The bitilla or cap is thrown flat, almost like a frisbee. When the cap is hit the people in the field try to catch the cap or pick it up while it is still moving. If the fielders can get the bitilla before t stops moving the batter is out. After 3 outs the teams switch places and the fielding people are at bat. It is fun to watch and if you do see a game ask if you can join in and play.
