The Colony

The Colony was established in 1970 as the first development of the Walnut Village in Irvine. There are 475 single family homes in the community. The Colony is a family community just blocks away from Irvine School District’s Irvine High School and College Park Elementary School. Just a short walk to shopping at both Walnut Village Center and Heritage Plaza; it is a pedestrian and bike friendly location. Peter’s Canyon Bike trail and Harvard Park Athletic fields are also close by.

Spring Wildlife Information
Bird and Duck Video from Public Information Officer Farrah Emami from Irvine Police Department
Greetings, Irvine neighbors. 

In the midst of spring, you may notice wildlife activity in your neighborhood and around the community. This time of year in Irvine, it is not unusual to see birds, bobcats, ducks and geese, coyotes, opossums, snakes, raccoons, and even turtles. 

The Irvine Police Department would like to share with you a series of three videos with information from our Animals Services Unit about normal and abnormal animal behavior, and what to do if you encounter or observe wild animals near your home. 

The first video is about birds, ducks and their babies, and is now available to be viewed on our Facebook page. Even if you don’t have a Facebook account, you should be able to view the video using this link
