BELMAR, NJ — If you have errands to run or are out for a walk today, make sure to swing by Three Acre Park on Main Street, where the cherry trees are in full bloom.

The soft pink flowers of these remembrance trees are bursting above Monument Row, which serves as a tribute to the fallen heroes of the armed forces — and the traditional site of the borough's Memorial Day and Veterans Day commemorations.

The park is located across from the U.S. Post Office on Main Street and the Belmar Elementary School on 12th Avenue.
