The Webster Groves Recreation Complex is a recreation and community center consisting of outdoor areas and a large multi-purpose indoor facility. Outdoor areas include the aquatic center, an action park, and a tennis center; the indoor facility features an ice arena, fitness center and gymnasium, and a community center. The indoor ice arena includes a dessicant-based dehumidification system, many challenges with controlling humidity in this low temperature space, and effectively using the waste heat produced by the ice making system.
