Female learning swimming

Q: I'm going to take my 3 year old son to learn swimming. I would like to know if it will be permissible for me to learn swimming if it is in the female area with normal decent dress and going fully covered?

A: For females to go swimming in a public area is not at all safe. A public area is not in your control and you do not know what happens and what goes on there.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
