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.

​Breakfast with Santa 
The rain stopped, the sun shone, and blue sky welcomed Santa for his visit to the Colony. All the good Colony boys and girls (and their families) headed to the Clubhouse December 13 to enjoy a pancake breakfast and ask Santa for that speical something. Cookie decorating, crafts, and fun rounded out the event. Many thanks to our volunteers who made the breakfast possible.... and a big thank you to Santa for coming by!
