The Energy Forest is located just 4 kilometers from the city center and is accessed by Provincial Route 11 on the way to Mar del Sud. It is part of the forest of the Dunícola Vivero Florentino Ameghino which is a strip of 500 hectares, kilometer and a half wide and almost 8 on the coast.
Afforestation, as usually occurs in areas of dunes , was carried out with the aim of fixing them to prevent them from moving by the violence of coastal winds.
The “Dark Forest”
There is a reserve sector, so called. It is an area where vegetation is so thick that it prevents the passage of the sun's rays, thus generates a cool and humid environment impregnated with coniferous balm. Whoever dared to get there lived nourishing sensations for the soul.
The phenomena that occur in that place capture the interest of curious artists, psychics, and also members of the national scientific community. The accounts of supernatural forces even provoked the visit of NASA scientists.
Through different research, some theories have been established that aim to explain the phenomena that occur. There are those who claim that there is a meteorite buried several tens of meters away. Others venture telluric flows, environmental ionization, quantum energy, Indian cemetery. Skeptics say that it is a place where peace and clean air reign.
Among the phenomena experienced by the visitors there were stories indicating that the battery-powered radios stopped working within the perimeter of the forest, but when they left they did so again. There are also those who were surprised to see small fleeting silhouettes wander among the foliage, which they defined as forest goblins . Others are convinced that they have seen strange lights and contours in images taken by cameras or videos, which at the time of recording them did not appear. There are those who are convinced that, as in the series “Dark Matter”, they explain the existence of an interdimensional portal that links the forest with an evolved civilization.
For the unbelievers , the locals invite to perform the next experiment that defies magnetic laws and even gravity itself. The test consists of collecting a pine twig from the ground and placing it on another in shape to form a “T”, when releasing it the balance seizes them and, like two magnets , remain fixed without falling.
Entrance to the park is free and free, although it is advisable to take a guided view. It lasts approximately one hour, on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 and 15:00, only by booking via the Facebook page. The activity is suspended by rain. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes and slippers, as well as water and some cereal bar. In one of the stops a meditation is done next to the trees
The Energy Forest invites you to connect with sensations, to disconnect the mind and surrender to nature.
