Ebster Pool is Renovated and Open for Business!


Ebster Pool has received a great renovation – it looks like a brand new pool and it is open!

The renovated pool has eight lanes, there is a new splash pad and the pool house has been renovated. We are so happy that our swim team, The Decatur Gators, now has a home pool for their meets.

Parking is  limited due to the construction of the Police Department and Ebster Gym, but there is plenty of parking in the evenings at the DeKalb County parking lot, just a short block away. Or ride your bike and refresh yourself after the ride.

Decatur Swim Passes are available at Glenlake Tennis Center.
