If you're going to want to make the most of your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then you're going to want to be able to conveniently access all of your island. Of course, once you have a vaulting pole you'll be able to access other parts but your villagers are going to need a bit of a more permanent solution. Enter, our Animal Crossing: New Horizons bridge recipe

Animal Crossing New Horizons Bridge Recipe

As you would have noticed in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your island might initially be a bit of a nightmare to navigate. This is because of the various natural bodies of water that run through the land, making it impossible for you to access your entire island from the get-go without the vaulting pole. Now, once you have the vaulting pole, you can get around but it's still a hop, skip and a jump that your villagers don't seem to be able to make. If you want to make sure that everything gets equal access to the various aspects of the island, especially if you're building facilities on places that can only be reached by vault pole, then you're going to need to build bridges. 

Enter, our Animal Crossing: New Horizons bridge recipe. To build a bridge, you're going to need to have done the following:

  1. To have upgraded Resident Services to a proper building
  2. Spoken to Tom Nook in the new building and said "let's talk infrastructure"

Once you've done that, you will be able to build a bridge in your town at a location of your choice, much like how you can pick a place for a house. Once you've fully paid off the amount owed to Tom Nook, who will set up Lloid the Gyroid to collect donations towards the bridge, the bridge that you've chosen when you initially talked to him will be available. Here are the various bridge prices - you don't need extra materials for these Animal Crossing: New Horizon bridge recipes:
