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.
Irvine World News featured a look back at Walnut Village to reflect on Irvine's agricultural history.  Did you know  that this area of Orange County supplied 1/3 of the world's English Walnuts from 1893 to 1931. The Colony was the first development in Walnut Village. Celebrations on the 4th of July at Colony Pool were mentioned as part of this history, a tradition that continues to this day.
