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.

​Calling All Colony Residents!
Are you young or young at heart?  Do you like to have fun and enjoy seeing others have fun too? Have you and your family enjoyed going to Colony Activities? Are you a teen needing service hours?
Well Colony Recreation needs YOU!
The Colony has had a long tradition of sponsoring activities for our residents, but we are currently in desperate need of a Recreation Chair and volunteers to carry out them out. It only requires a few hours of your time and a desire to give back to your community.

We had no volunteers to host a Halloween Party so no event was scheduled. We are looking for volunteers for Breakfast with Santa. We need volunteers to step up to run these events. It is fun and rewarding!  It will cost you nothing but your time, and you will be rewarded in smiles!
 If you are interested in volunteering, please call Myra Radlow, at 949-857-4633, or any other board member.  Thank you!
