Beeswax Creek Park hosted the 40th Annual Bassmaster Classic in February of 2010. It was the fourth Classic on Lay Lake. Beeswax Creek Park is located off Hwy.145 in the Columbiana/Wilsonville area. The Park is located on property leased from Alabama Power Company. The park was financed, built and is maintained by Shelby County.

Beeswax Park includes a public boat launch site that has served as host to numerous local, regional and national fishing tournaments. Construction of a new 5-foot wide, 100-foot long boat launch pier that extends 60-feet from shore was completed Summer 2009.

Beeswax Creek Park is located on Lay Lake and has many water based amenities such as two paved boat launch facilities with a pier, two floating fishing piers; one is handicap accessible, two picnic pavilions, and benches along the lake front with grills, a basketball court, a walking trail and restrooms.
