Dinton is great for small children and push chairs as it has quite even, flat paths around the lakes. It is also greater for older children with bikes, or if you go to the play area. The play area often has kit out of action audit can get a little muddy but the children still love it. It would be great for dogs too, but it is not a place to let your dog off the lead as there are too many children / disapproving parents / birds.
They have recently redone the cafe and refurbished the facilities which makes a huge difference. The food is not cheap, but for the quality it is still quite good value.
Don't forget your change for the car park :)
