To my knowledge, there isn't any comparable package out there, but that doesn't mean you should buy this one.
While tool kit package deals represent a discount vs buying the contents separately, the savings rarely offsets the cost of tools that the buyer ends up never using.
Most folks tend to work on only one or a few bikes, often with similar components. That means they don't need various tools for freewheels or cassette, bottom brackets, headsets, etc. If you take the time to assess your specific needs, and add up their prices, you might find you can spend less that this package costs.
The other advantage of buying separately is that you can choose the best version of each tool, which may not be the same as what's in the Park package.
