The regular city bus goes right to a Park entrance BTW, I did the Turistic bus for one day for sightseeing and to get over to the Miro museum and that area (and the Catalonia Art musum), it was nice for those trips. But I went to that park another day and just used the city bus as it goes closer.

The closest Turistic bustop is on Travessera de Dalt and Carrer de Larrard which is about 7 blocks away from the lower entrance on carrer d'Olot The Monuments area is above that, you have to climb several flights of stairs to get to it. So walking time depends on how fast you walk, but maybe 10-15 minutes. See this map, they show the stop, it's the orange line http://www.parkguell.cat/en/how-to-get-here/

They don't even show the bus stop, which stops right at the parc in the upper area, however, but you can see them if you englarge the map.

If there's more than one of you going to Parc Guell, and you don't particularly need the HOHO bus for the rest of the day, look into the cost of a taxi. In Barcelona they're not expensive, and it can drop you off right at the gate instead of the looooong up hill walk from the bus.

The HO Ho buses cost somewhere around €23 per person, so for a family cabs are much cheaper for the few places that aren't within walking distance of the Placa de Catalunya. You probably wouldn't have time to visit all the outliers in one day anyway and IME the tickets for these buses are valid only for the day that you buy them, not 24 hours.
