A park commemorates Violet Smith who lived in the town of Tully for 46 years.

Violet Smith was a tireless member of the community and over the years had looked after a number of children who had lost their parents at a young age. Violet owned a bakery and used to deliver bread from a horse drawn cart and  became Tully's first woman driver when she purchased a delivery van. She also owned and ran the newsagency for some time. Violet refused all Council's requests to nominate her for honours seeking no recognition for her community work.
