Too Dark Park is the sixth studio album by the industrial music group Skinny Puppy.[4] The artwork of the album included the debut appearance of their "SP" logo, in a gothic form. Two of the album's songs, "Tormentor" and "Spasmolytic", were released both before and after its release, which by that time was critically acclaimed along with the singles.

The cover art was created by Jim Cummins.[5] The artwork for this album and its associated singles was inspired by cosmic horror stories such as the Cthulhu Mythos.
