Our Amazon lockers, located at the Park Centre next to the pharmacy, make it easy to pick up your amazon.co.uk parcels at a time that is convenient to you.
How do the Amazon lockers work?
Just order your Amazon parcel in the usual way. When you get to the checkout, under Delivery Address, click on ‘Why not Click and Collect?’ and locate the delivery point at ‘5 Park Square, Milton Park’.
Once your parcel is delivered to the Amazon Locker, you'll receive an email with a unique pickup code and the address and opening times for your selected locker location. The code will also be available in the tracking information for your order.
When you arrive to collect your parcel, enter your pickup code or scan the barcode using the barcode scanner and follow the instructions on the screen.
All parcels delivered to Amazon Locker locations must be picked up within three days. If you're not able to pick-up your parcel within this timeframe, the parcel will be returned to Amazon and you will receive a refund.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we are proud to have our urban gardens meaning occupiers can grow fruit, vegetables, herbs and other plants while they're at work. Each bed is sponsored by a company who decide what they would like to grow. Many of the companies have set up garden clubs for their employees and it is a great way for people to get some fresh air, meet others on the Park and share gardening tips, improving overall wellbeing and work-life balance.
We run an annual Urban Garden Awards to create some healthy competition amongst those with a plot, awarding prizes for:
- Biodiversity award
- Most unusual food item
- Largest food item
- Most inventive garden
- Best use of colour
- Most overgrown.
