Work on finger pier begins in April, 2020 at Glen Isle Beach area
Hi neighbors - The Glen Isle Board is taking measures to reduce erosion at our waterfront and preserve the beach areas. To that end the board has approved the project to rehabilitate (replace) the finger pier on the North side of the boat ramp. The replacement structure will include the wavebreak features for the entire length of the pier.
This will encourage sand to accumulate upstream of the pier in front of the small beach. The new pier will also be one foot higher than the existing pier - an acknowledgement of rising mean high tides.
Work will begin in April and will be completed by mid-May. Please exercise CAUTION around the boat ramp while the work is underway.
2020 Pier Slip Application online
If you plan on renting a boat slip in Glen Isle this year, now is a great time to submit your application. You never know when it's going to get crowded down there, so get your form & payment in.
The annual community clean-up program sponsored by AA County will once again let Glen Isler's utilize two huge dumpsters to safely dispose of unwanted household items. This is a great way to get rid of larger furniture or similar items.
Dumpsters will be at the Community Clubhouse parking lot by 12 pm Monday, July 13th, 2020 and picked up by 12 pm Wednesday, July 15th, 2020.
Please note that there are some items that may not be put into the dumpsters by policy and the community is responsible for the safe handling of the dumpsters while they are on site. We cannot overload them or prevent a door from closing for safe pick-up.

Glen Isle History
"Beautiful Glen Isle on the South River," that's the way the early developer (circa 1923) described this waterfront community. He also used other superlatives to entice prospective buyers such as "...rich in the traditions of the former days; convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington; noted for its sandy beaches and traditionally the home of Black Beard the Pirate."
Our original tract of 138 acres was part of a much larger grant given to the second Lord Baltimore. Subsequently, this tract was sold to a Mr. Burgess from Baltimore and then to his son-in-law, Mr. Beard. For many years the property was known as Beard's Farm.
The northernmost part of the community beach (where the cattails are located) is officially called Beard's Point and can be found on most nautical charts of the area. Our main wharf was long used by ferry boats traveling to Annapolis and by commercial fisherman. The oyster shells lying on the beach are artifacts of this bygone era.
