The Violet Cury Nature Preserve was acquired in 1995 by Hillsborough County through the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP) with assistance from the Florida Communities Trust.

This 160-acre sanctuary contains examples of natural habitats such as pine flatwoods, sandhill, marshes, oak hammock, and Lake Flynn, a freshwater lake, all of which are unique in the community. The 2.25 mile-long hiking trail is an excellent non-strenuous hike.
