In 2015, Decatur opened the newly renovated Ebster Recreation Center, part of the Beacon Municipal Complex. The building features a full size gymnasium and plenty of classroom and meeting space. For more information and photos, click here. Included in the Beacon Complex is the renovated Ebster Pool which features a splash pad. The pool was enlarged to host the Decatur Gators Swim Team.
