Seven Seas Marine Life Park was a marine mammal habitat and oceanic theme park built and owned by the city of Arlington. The park opened on March 18, 1972 and 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 as it did not generate enough revenue to both pay its operating expenses and reture the bonded indebtedness. The park, parts of which still exist, is a source of bittersweet memories for those who worked at or visited the park during its short, ill-fated run.
Join us at Fielder Museum to see artifacts from Seven Seas and maybe even rekindle a few memories of Arlington's bygone summers.
