After a 12-year journey with many detours, the Menlo Park Fire Protection District recently opened its new Station 6, which has an inside that couldn't be more up-to-date with an outside that looks like a throwback to earlier times. The station, one of seven in the district, is centrally located at 700 Oak Grove Ave., a block from both Santa Cruz Avenue and El Camino Real. The new 8,335-square-foot station replaces an older 3,000-square-foot building that opened in 1953, according to Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman. The new station cost $11.54 million to build, including design fees, construction, project management fees and other costs, according to a district release.
