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.

The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District gave a very informative presentation to Colony residents at the clubhouse on April 13th. ​We would like to thank Mary-Joy Coburn, the Public Affairs Coordinator for the district. She was very helpful in answering our questions and presenting the latest information on outside pests in our community. 

The District is asking for our help in controlling the spread of mosquitoes by reporting  ALL daytime mosquito attacks to the Orange County Mosquito & Vector Control District at: Phone: (714) 971-2421 Flyer link
