The Charles Curtis Greenway, which begins at the intersection of NW Topeka Blvd. and NW Morse, peaks at NW Paramore where it lines both sides of Topeka Blvd., extending to the east and west. The greenway consists mainly of large garden beds and a section of the Soldier Creek Trail that links to Garfield Park on the east. On the west side, a gravel road (take Paramore west to Harrison and go north) leads to the Curtis Family Cemetery at the top of a small hill beside the creek channel.

Charles Curtis grew up in Topeka and served as U.S. Representative (1893-1907) and U.S. Senator (1907-1913 and 1915-1929) before becoming the 31st Vice President of the United States under President Herbert Hoover (1929-1933). Curtis is buried at Topeka Cemetery.
