Centro Olímpico Juan Pablo Duarte (translation: Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center) is a multi-venued athletic complex in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was initially built for the 1974 Central American and Caribbean Games, and also hosted multiple venues of the 2003 Pan American Games.[1]

As of 2011, the complex has fallen into disrepair and efforts are underway to preserve the complex and maintain it.[2][3] ( Outdated and innacurate data. As of 2013 the complex is operating at peak efficiency)
