Ppuri park is not very far from the city center (less than one hour by bus and walk). For us it was very pleasant walk in a beautiful garden of blooming flowers (it was May), interesting sculptures on a green slope of a hill above a river. On the bank of the river many families with children play or picnic. There is a lot of information about the place in the internet, however if you are interested in the history and culture of Korea it is good to visit the place with someone who reads and translate Korean. As far as I understand the sculptures are not tombs (and park is not a cemetery), it's all about the history of family names in Korea. Quite lovely and interesting place even if you do not read Korean.

This is a nice park a bit far from the city centre. It has a nice and big car park but to reach the main part of the park you need to pass through a bridge and pay 2000 korean won per person. If you are scared of height, the bridge might be a bit uncomfortable for you as it is a bit shaky and see through but it is definitely safe.
Once you pass the bridge there is a big green field in the middle where you can have a picnic or play games. There is a museum which tells about the korean ancestors, kings and queens, various clans and dynasties but sadly it is all in Korean and the guides do not speak English. A friend of mine said there are also lots of chinese information but I wouldn't know.
You can see the tombs and have a break at some of the benches.
The river right next to the park adds a nice breeze. You can rent some swans to have a stroll in the river, you pay 15.000 krw for 30 mins, 25.000krw for an hour.
There is a coffee shop in the premises but not a great one.
You can have your animal and a nice walk there, I am sure your pet would enjoy.

I really enjoyed Ppuri park. It has great scenery with two bridges across the river. There are also a plethora of stone sculptures. However, the downside is that it is far removed from the rest of Daejeon, being around a 50 minute bus ride from Daejeon station

If you are staying in Daejeon and plan to ride bicycle along the riverside, Ppuri park can be one of the place that you can visit. It is about 13 kilometers from Expo bridge and bicycle track to this place is in good condition with direction marks along the track. After arriving at the park, you can stroll around inside the park and also take a boat ride in the near by river.

On a lovely fall day I traveled on the 314 bus and walked from the stop to a parking lot with facilities and the entrance of the park from the north east. There are numerous trails even before you hit the park after crossing the river. One could spend many hours enjoying nature.
The park itself is a commemorative park to Korean families. Beautiful sculptures dot the hill, telling the history of each family name and their symbols. The park also holds an observatory on the top of the hill, a sculpture display of the Zodiac signs, numerous totems, a wild flower garden, a tour guide center, and a beautiful museum. At night the museum's outdoor time table lights up.
There are also facilities for food, touring on a boat,and festivities in the field area of the park.
This unique park is worth a visit for a light and thoughtful diversion.
