@ssswife, My husband and I did exactly what you're thinking of! We have a toddler and moved from East York to Oshawa a year and a half ago. BEST decision of our lives! 45 minute commute on the GO Train, many parks, rec centres, nice neighbourhoods, great people, safe, etc. The city is weird in terms of its bad pockets though. Generally, avoid living too close to the 401 and downtown; the north (especially above Rossland) is very nice. There are some '50s neighbourhoods with (affordable) big houses and huge yards and then there are lots of new developments up and around Taunton. The border of Courtice is nice too, even the south. Also some new developments there, if that's your thing. If you're looking in traditional North Oshawa, just avoid Taunton and Ritson. Apparently there's a concentrated bad area called Nonquon right there. Let me know if you have more questions!
