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.
