The Danube Swabians, German settlers who colonized the area near the Danube River, purchased Lenau Park in the 1970s when they out grew their former home. In 1986, they built the multi-level Cleveland Donauschwaben German-American Cultural Center. They then added the foyer in 1996.

The name Lenau Park comes from from Nikolaus Lenau, a famous German poet who came to Ohio in 1832 for a short time.
