The West Yorkshire city of Wakefield is located at the edge of The Pennines and lies on the River Calder. In May 2011 The Hepworth Wakefield gallery opened on the south bank of the River Calder near Wakefield Bridge. The gallery displays work by local artists Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore along with other British and international artists. The gallery is thought to be the largest purpose-built gallery to open in the United Kingdom since 1968. The city's three parks date back to the 1890's when Clarence Park opened on land near Lawe Hill. The neighbouring Holmefield Estate was then purchased in 1919 and followed shortly after by Thornes House in 1924. The Clarence Park Music Festival is held annually and focuses on promoting local bands.
Wakefield is known as the capital of the Rhubarb Triangle, an area notable for growing early forced rhubarb. In July 2005 a sculpture was erected to celebrate this facet of Wakefield, and there is an annual 'Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb" which takes place over the last weekend in February.
The National Coal Mining Museum for England, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Nostell Priory are within the Wakefield metropolitan area, as is Walton Hall, a Georgian mansion set in what was the world's first nature reserve, created by the explorer Charles Waterton.
