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.

At the September board meeting The Colony Board of Directors appointed Truc Nguyen to fill the vacant seat on The Board for the current term. In July we, the Colony homeowners, elected six board members because only six people were running for the seven seats. We are grateful Truc has accepted and is eager to fill the seat and work with The Board to fulfill its duties for our community.

The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District gave a very informative presentation to Colony residents at the clubhouse on April 13th. ​We would like to thank Mary-Joy Coburn, the Public Affairs Coordinator for the district. She was very helpful in answering our questions and presenting the latest information on outside pests in our community.
