Violet Cury Preserve
A majority of preserves and some parks are now open. Visit the COVID-19 Closures & Reopenings page for more info.
Location and Hours
There is no parking lot at Violet Cury Nature Preserve. Parking is available on the side of Sinclair Hills road, along the fence next to the preserve entrance.
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.
