Facility agricultural land (FAL) is an important spatial carrier of non-grain agricultural production. Under the current land use transition, the impact of regional arable and construction land scales on the scale of FAL and their spatial effects are unclear. Based on the data of the second (2008) and third (2018) national land surveys, this study used spatial autocorrelation analysis and land use transfer matrix to systematically analyze the spatial evolution characteristics of the FAL in Tai'an City and the key influencing factors, in an attempt to provide some theoretical support for the management of "non-grain" and "non-agricultural" transition of arable land and the spatial layout adjustment of FAL. The results show that: 1) During the decade between 2008 and 2018, the total area of FAL in Tai'an City was relatively stable, but the net change was dramatic, and arable land and construction land were the main sources and destinations for transferring FAL, respectively. 2) The FAL showed a spatial pattern of moving from the center of the counties/districts to the periphery, with an increasing trend of agglomeration in distant urban areas. 3) During the second national land survey period, the scale of arable land promoted the expansion of FAL, while during the third national land survey period, the scale of arable land inhibited the growth of FAL and the effect was more significant in townships far away from the county seats. 4) During both the second and the third national land surveys, construction land steadily promoted the expansion of facility agricultural land, and this effect was widespread in space.
