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.

​4th of July Colony Parade, Games, Pool and Family Fun 
  The 4th is the biggest Colony event of the year with the entire family, young and old, enjoying the fun.
  • We stared with Bike and Anything on Wheels Parade and I think it was the largest turnout ever. 
  • Lawn Games  were fun for the kids
  • Pool Games and raft races rounded out a full day of FUN.  
Thank you Colony Red Hots for running the Snack Bar again this year. And a big thank you to LaDonna Bornzin for pulling it all together and all the volunteers who stepped up through out the day to lend a hand.
