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.

​Santa Visits the Colony Clubhouse
Santa and Mrs. Claus made their way to the Colony Clubhouse to enjoy a pancake breakfast with all the fixings. There were crafts, cookie decorating and of course the chance to ask Santa for your special Christmas wish!  It looked like everyone had a jolly good time.  
A big thank you goes out to Colony Club members LaDonna Bornzin, The Allmanns, Eileen Tsai, Emmanuelle Bigot, Alan and Valerie Schiano and Elaine Dedeaux for all their help in putting this event together. See additional photos on the recreation page
