General Electric's Nela Park The world headquarters of General Electric's Lighting Division, Nela Park was the world's first industrial park. Today Nela Park is comprised of a 92 acre campus with 20 Georgian Revival-style buildings and has approximately 800 employees. Established in 1911 on property that once housed a vineyard in what was then rural countryside, Nela Park was designated a Natuonal Historic Place in 1975.

Nela Park has been doing its annual lighting display for 89 years. The entire display is lit by energy-efficient GE LED lights displaying crisp, vibrant and bright colors for all to see. The LED lights last 10 times longer than traditional Christmas lights and use only about 20% of the energy.

Nela Park's Claim to Fame Since 1922 Nela Park has designed and produced the lights for the National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C. Nela Park also makes and donates the ornaments for the National Tree. A smaller replica of this year's National Tree is showcased at the Nela Park lighting display in East Cleveland.

This year's lighting display will also feature five star-themed vignettes and more than 125 lit holiday trees.

The Nela Park lighting display will be lit all day and night from now through January 1, 2014. There is no charge to view the lights.

Nela Park is located at 1975 Noble Rd. in East Cleveland.
