Shelton-LakesLeaves4Part of the greenway in the central part of Shelton, the 10.3-acre Hope Lake (also known as Nells Rock Reservoir) includes a small dam with structure at one end.

The pond is a popular place to picnic, fish, canoe and kayak, and also features walking paths that are regularly used by hikers and joggers.
