“The Inaugural Charm City Games in 2019 was a major success for the young residents of Baltimore and their families,” said Reginald Moore, executive director of Baltimore City Recreation and Parks. “Our agency is always ready to step up to the challenge of making sure our youth remain engaged and to provide innovative approaches to recreation. Charm City Games allows us to do just that, and we are so glad that we will see its return in 2021.”
