Bus No. 21 would do. You can take it from the South Station and get off at Dashizidong (city center). It is not far from the Pingguoshan Park. It is indeed a long distance trip by bus, maybe 33 stops.

Exact name of bus station
Hi,
I checked Baidu maps and there is not a 100% match for 凯莉客运站。Do you know what the exact name is?
Thanks

There is one called Kaili ke che zhan (凯里客车站), I suppose this is the one you are looking for? At No. 25 North Wenhua Road.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for the reply. I'm specifically looking to match 凯里客运站 - the one displayed on the image below in this page to the actual place name - I'm guessing the author or someone who has travelled there before has the answer.

Cheers,
