Beeswax Creek Park, bordered by Beeswax Creek to its north and Lay Lake (Coosa River) to its east, is located off State Highway 145 in the Columbiana / Wilsonville area. Located on property leased from Alabama Power Company, the day use only park, adjacent to Beeswax Landing, was built and is maintained by Shelby County. Beeswax Creek Park has many amenities including three fishing piers; one handicap accessible fishing pier; two picnic pavilions; two canoe-in only campsites; a 2.8 mile multi-use trail for hiking, running, and mountain biking; two playgrounds; a basketball court; and two restroom facilities. A caretaker provides security for the park. Alabama Power Company, through its "The Preserves" program, has added a boardwalk and a bridge to the trail system, created a pollinator plot with interpretive signs, and built two gazebos overlooking Lay Lake.

Beeswax Landing features a four-lane public boat launch, an ADA accessible fish weigh-in pavilion with live wells and water access, sidewalks, and parking for 155 truck/trailers. It is an annual host site for the Alabama Bass Trail Series. The site has hosted numerous local, regional and national fishing tournaments including the 2017 Carhartt College B.A.S.S. Series Wild Card Tournament, BASS High School Southern Open, and hosted the 40th Annual BassMaster Classic, the fourth Classic on Lay Lake.
