Dinton Pastures Country Park

Wokingham

Riverside Café, nature walks & lakes.

Inclusive facilities - Changing Places & Mobility Scooters

The park hosts a changing places toilet for our less able visitors, while for our smallest visitors we have baby changing facilities.

Use of the changing places toilet requires a radar key which is available from the onsite café. It has a height adjustable, adult sized and wall mounted changing bench with a ceiling track hoist. The toilet is centrally placed with room either side for carers. More information about these facilities can be found on the changing places website.

We also provide mobility scooters for visitors who have difficulty walking, but still wish to explore and enjoy our country park. Children between 12 and 16 years old are also eligible to use the scooters when accompanied by an adult. This facility is free after completing a simple induction, which includes some form filling and a brief test on a scooter. No special skills are needed as the scooters are easy to drive and full instruction will be given. You must be able to walk to the scooter and be under 30 stone in weight.

  • Give us a call on 0118 934 2016 and we'll book you in for an induction. Please note that  your induction needs to be booked in prior to you first use of the facility. We suggest at least two weeks. 
  • Once inducted you will need to pre-book the scooter out for you desired dates and times to ensure that it is available for you. 
  • A Manual Wheelchair is also available on request - booking advisable by calling 0118 934 2016

Thames River Cruises

Caversham Pier & Promenade, Reading.
"Where possible we will use the Caversham Lady for our river trips from Caversham. She has been redesigned to allow easy wheelchair access with as close as we can manage to a flat deck and has wheelchair accessible toilets.
All our vessels carry ramps to assist with wheelchair access and our staff are trained to assist. We try hard to accommodate all guests as comfortably as possible but we advise you give us a quick call in advance so we can discuss which vessel will be operating a specific service and what is possible"
