The Colony

The Colony was established in 1970 as part of the Walnut Village of 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.

How to Recognize Drug Use and Drug Activity In Your Neighborhood
presented by The Colony Club Homeowners Association Board of Directors
  • When:  Tuesday, May 6, 2014
  • Time:  7:00 – 8:00 PM
  • Where:  The Colony Clubhouse
An officer from the Irvine Police Department will be coming to speak to us about how to recognize drug use and drug activity in the neighborhood.  As the weather warms up, this sort of behavior may increase in the neighborhood.  The officer will discuss how to recognize suspicious activities, be a good witness, and stay safe.  The presentation should take about 20 minutes – so be on time! – and will include samples of paraphernalia for your information.  After the presentation, the officer will be available for your questions.
Colony Easter Egg Hunt!
Colony Kids were treated to a visit from the Easter Bunny on Saturday, April 12, at Colony Park.  The egg hunt was fast and furious and as expected all the eggs were discovered in minutes. The recreation committee would like to thank our helpers and special thanks to our volunteers from Boy Scout troop 675 who helped set up and clean up the park area after the hunt was finished.  

See the Recreation page for more pictures from the event. 
Colony Walking & Jogging Activity Groups 
Do you want to get some exercise and get to know some of your neighbors a little better?  The Colony has started a walking group and a jogging group to do just that.  The groups met for the first time on Saturday, March 8th, and decided to meet weekly thereafter.  To join in, meet up in front of the Clubhouse any Saturday morning at 9:00 AM.  To participate, you will need to sign a liability waver before your first outing.  You are welcome to join whenever you can.  Hope to see you there!
