Once an electric substation, the aptly named Sparky Park is a small, artsy pocket park in the Central Austin/Hyde Park area. It all came to be when the City of Austin commissioned local artist Berthold Haas to design a wall that would mask the unsightly electrical machinery. The Gaudi-influenced grotto wall is a mosaic made from glass, marbles, seashells, petrified wood and other found materials, and its whimsical design serves as the perfect backdrop for a quirky photo shoot or a nice pit stop on your walk around the neighborhood.
