Seven Seas Marine Life Park was a marine theme park built and owned by the city of Arlington, Texas, United States.

The park opened on March 18, 1972. The 35 acre site was located in north Arlington off Interstate 30 near Six Flags Over Texas and adjacent to Arlington Stadium.

The city council of Arlington voted to close the park in 1976 because it did not generate enough revenue to both pay its operating expenses and pay off the bonded indebtedness. [ [http://library.uta.edu/guideToArchives/guideHist7.jsp The University of Texas at Arlington Library] ]
